Volunteering at VI

Vajrayana Institute relies on the ongoing support of volunteers for the centre to flourish.

Volunteers take on many responsibilities at the centre including working in the office and shop, as well as assisting with facilitating at teachings, big events and conferences. Volunteers also contribute by cleaning and tidying the gompa, helping with gardening, and cleaning and cooking meals for the resident Sangha.
