We offer volunteer opportunities to people interested in applying the Buddha-Dharma through volunteering in the following areas:

Facilitating psycho-education groups for university students/young adults

Project co-ordination

Placement opportunities are also available to students in education programs in Buddhism, counselling, psychotherapy, spiritual care and social work requiring supervised placements.
