All of the Kadampa Buddhist Centers around the world are non-profit, volunteer organizations that function to help the people of the local area spiritually.  Volunteering at the Center is such a rewarding and meaningful activity, as the Center itself exists to benefit all living beings!  Everyone is welcome to help in whatever capacity fits their availability and abilities.   There are many different areas in which volunteers are needed.  Training is provided for all volunteer jobs and the only necessary qualification is a wish to help!
