Volunteer Opportunities: Open to All

Volunteering is a way to give back to the entire community, to lean into the path of service as practice, to learn about leadership in Shambhala—all while supporting the vision of an uplifted and kind society.

We welcome you to volunteer in any of these areas on your own, join in with a group or team, or work with the Volunteer Coordinator to form a team.  We aspire to building teams, community, and camaraderie, but also welcome people who prefer to work on their own.

Interested in learning more? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Rebecca Jamieson.
