Offer your time and skills to help co-create the active and kind-hearted Jamyang you enjoy.
Our local and remote volunteering programme is open to all – we’re always on the lookout for new team members
What is a local volunteer?
A volunteer is someone who springs into action to benefit others. At Jamyang Buddhist Centre London our local volunteer team are community members who offer service by volunteering their time and skills at the Buddhist centre. Often the volunteers are London based or local to Jamyang Buddhist Centre London, and the activities they are involved in are on-site on a weekly basis.
What is a remote volunteer?
Our remote volunteers are often people who have a connection with Jamyang Buddhist Centre London, through our online programmes. The remote aspect of their volunteering means they offer service with offsite activity, this could be anything from proofreading and copywriting, to surveys and research or video editing and social media support.
Jamyang Buddhist Centre London has a beautiful potted courtyard garden and smaller walled garden too. Lively hedgerows and wisteria add to the greenery, and our indoor plants create a sense of natural calm. Our plants require tending on a weekly basis, and we welcome volunteers with green fingers.

Painting and Maintenance
Jamyang Buddhist Centre London is a Grade II listed building that requires an eye for detail when it comes to decorative care, repairs and maintenance. We have an ongoing schedule of care for the building, which would always benefit from an extra pair of hands. Apply Here.

There’s always a project on the go that needs the expertise of a qualified electrician or plumber, from helping to improve our energy efficiency to planning the best fittings and installation of light offerings for statues and artwork, or advising and helping out with ad-hoc projects. Apply Here.
