Volunteering at Nagarjuna Kadampa Meditation Centre

Kadampa Meditation Centre is run completely by the kindness of volunteers.  Members and non-members of the community volunteer their time to provide all of the facilities the centre offers, including a full range of Buddhist study and meditation programs throughout the year. Everything within these courses, from the Teacher’s time to the baked goods and homemade soups, is pure volunteer work.

We have many different opportunities available.  There is always help needed in the World Peace Café – training as a Barista is provided, or learn new skills working in our office, on reception or distributing publicity in the local area.

We can also offer working visits, where in exchange for 35 hours of work a week, you receive full board and access to all the classes and meditation courses at the centre.

Please come and find out how you can help!

Email us and we shall send you a volunteering application form.
