The Dharma Center is always in need of for energetic, motivated people to give of their time to help in the many tasks necessary for the Dharma Center to function.
See the current volunteer needs listed below. To learn more on any of the listed volunteer opportunities or learn other ways you might help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and my cell phone number is 908-500-8118.
Greeting Team: Greeting requires the opening and closing of the DDC for the weekly Monday night sit. Greeters arrive 30 minutes before the sit to prepare the meditation hall for the evening. Duties include welcoming and assisting visitors as they arrive, directing latecomers, and recording the number of visitors for the evening. At the conclusion of the meeting, the greeters will straighten the hall as necessary, collect and record the dana offerings, and close the building after all visitors have left the Dharma Center.
The time commitment for greeting volunteers is one or two Monday evenings per month. Greeting would be an ideal way for a couple or friends to volunteer together. An added benefit is meeting new and old sangha members.
The Clean Team is looking for members to clean the Dharma Center. This is a 2 hour per month time commitment. Cleaning takes place Monday mornings from 10 to 12 and one Sunday afternoon per month. The cleaning tasks are shared among four people each week. This is an opportunity to work with others to care for and maintain our sacred space. Detailed instructions are provided. There is an option to volunteer for other hours if the above schedule is not convenient.
