Volunteering at the Center
The Dharma Center is entirely staffed by volunteers, and we appreciate those who give their time and skills to the activities that keep the organization running. We hope that offering service to the dharma and supporting others will not only benefit the Center but also the volunteers themselves. We offer opportunities to volunteer as another form of dharma practice.
We are actively looking for volunteers in these areas:
We’re looking to build our Programming and Finance Committees and the Board of Directors
If you have experience in Quickbooks or fundraising, or would like to help plan the programs offered, we’d love to have you join us. Please email us if you’d like to explore these possibilities.
Hosts for Streamed Programs and Events
We need people to host our Saturday Streamings from Spirit Rock, which involves setting up the TV and computer, logging in online and being a host for the day to those who attend. The day can be split between two hosts, as 9 am – 4:30 pm is a lot of time to volunteer. We offer periodic trainings to those who’d like to see what’s involved and consider this form of much-needed support.
We need help from time to time to set up events such as retreats or public talks. This might involves arranging cushions, chairs, tables and other equipment, preparing the kitchen area, manning a registration table, and any extra help to get the space ready for the event.
Daily Meditation “bell-ringers”
Bell ringers open the center for the one-hour, drop-in sits, welcome others, begin and end the sit by ringing the bell, and stay until the participants leave.
Hanging posters and other advertising material on the various bulletin boards around town.
A little extra cleaning every couple of weeks helps keep the center in good order. Cleaning volunteers have specific jobs to do at specific intervals, which are arranged by the core staff members.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping out in any of these ways.
Thank you for considering giving your time to support the Dharma in Bozeman!
