Summer Staff and Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you stay for the summer, a month, or a week, your service at Dorje Denma Ling is warmly welcome. Please contact us.

Staff and volunteers participate in the daily community meditation practice, have access to local Meditation Instructors, and opportunities to participate in staff programs. Volunteers have two days off per week, room and board, and receive program credit based on length of service, good for two years. The best part of volunteering is the opportunity to offer your heart and service and participate in the creation of Enlightened Society.

Summer positions are available between the end of May and the end of August, 2015.

Please email our Personnel Manager at personnel@dorjedenmaling.com, or call (902) 657-9085 ext. 21.

 

The following departments are seeking volunteer assistance:

 

Facilities

Dorje Denma Ling welcomes facilities volunteers to help with building projects, repairs and outdoor projects. In addition to the routine facilities work, people who have experience in the building trades – carpenters, painters, plumbers, electricians – are particularly in need for a variety of special projects. Late June through the end of August is a great time to offer a week or even long weekend as we prepare for our high season, and the Sakyong’s visit.

 

Kitchen

If you love cooking or helping in the kitchen, we welcome you to apply as a kitchen volunteer. Come and help prepare healthy and delicious meals for our core community and program participants. Your help will be most welcome the last two weeks of June, and mid-July through the end of August.

 

Housekeeping

Help to keep Denma Ling sparkling and uplifted. We always need help with routine cleaning, preparation of participant accommodations and deep cleaning to magnetize the dralas.

 

If you would like to know more about volunteering at Dorje Denma Ling, or to submit an application, email our Volunteer Coordinator, at personnel@dorjedenmaling.com, or call (902) 657-9085 ext. 21.

During the cold-weather months, accommodations limit the number of volunteers we can accept.
