Offer your time and skills to help co-create the active and kind-hearted Jamyang you enjoy.
Our local and remote karma yogi program is open to all – we’re always on the look out for new team members
What is a local Karma Yogi volunteer?
A karma yogi is someone who springs into action to benefit others. At Jamyang our local Karma Yogi team are community members who offer service by volunteering their time and skills at the centre. Often the volunteers are London based or local to Jamyang and the activities they are involved in are on-site on a weekly basis. Read more below for the type of volunteer activities we engage with and how to apply.
What is a remote Karma Yogi volunteer?
Our remote Karma Yogi’s are often people who have a connection with Jamyang, through our online programs for example, who live internationally or elsewhere in the UK. The remote aspect of their volunteering means they offer service with offsite activity, this could be anything from proof reading and copy writing, to surveys and research or video editing and social media support. Find out more below.
