YOU are the person we've been looking for!
Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago runs entirely on the energy of our volunteers -- from those who drop in to the center to help out on occasion, to our dedicated managers and teachers. Without our volunteers, there would be no center.
Volunteering Provides ...
An opportunity to cherish others, and embody altruism, patience, and wisdom
A stable, inspiring environment to connect with like-minded friends
A meaningful contribution to a better world
A way to help others enjoy the classes and events we offer
Anyone can volunteer.
You don't need to have any special skills or make any regular commitment. We have many volunteer opportunities which can be done by anyone with little or no training, and many can be done whenever your schedule allows. Our volunteers are from all walks of life and help us with a vast range of tasks. Any help is welcome!
Even small acts of service benefit others enormously! That's because the function of a Buddhist center is to provide a place of peace, harmony, and spiritual growth for every living being without exception.
