Volunteering at Jamyang is a great way to practice dharma and we immensely appreciate the help of our volunteers!
Jamyang is a great place for enthusiastic people to be in a dharma environment within an exciting central London location.
Here’s how you can volunteer according to your time and abilities:
Short Term Volunteering - few hours or a day:
Just come for a few hours, or few days to offer your time and skills.
Please include a short summary of any specific skills you have, and what times and/or days you have available.
Full time Volunteering - 3 month residential programme:
Volunteer in a more serious way, by joining our 3 month residential volunteer Work Programme scheme. You can either work in our Hospitality Team offering service such as:
cleaning, greeting visitors to Jamyang, setting up rooms for events etc
or in our Cafe Team offering service such as:
cleaning, serving customers, barista work & some cooking (with training given)
If you want to apply, you must be able to demonstrate oral and written competency in the English language at least equivalent to the B2 level in the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR).
Please be aware that this programme is a 35 hour a week service, with 2 days off per week. We offer a single room accommodation and all meals, plus access to most teachings and in-house events. These positions really are about taking the opportunity to offer service and deal with our own self-centeredness head on.
Please include a short summary of why you would like to live and work at Jamyang for 3 months and let us know any specific skills you have.
It is helpful to have a strong, healthy body and mind for this programme!
