Enjoy making a difference
There are two main ways to volunteer at Madhyamaka KMC: on a regular basis if you live locally, or on a Volunteering Visit if you live further afield.
See below for more information about each option.
In exchange for 25 hours work a week (spread over five days), you receive: seven days free dormitory accommodation, three vegetarian meals a day, full use of all the centre’s facilities and free attendance at meditation classes during your stay. It is also a unique opportunity to meet and work alongside members of the residential community and to find out more about the Buddhist way of life. You can volunteer for a weekend, a week or longer.
Help is needed in a variety of different areas – such as cafe, maintenance, gardens, household and cleaning, and are a great way to have fun and make new friends!
Accommodation is in either male or female dorm – please bring your own sleeping bag and towel.
Please note we currently have no availability until 19 August 2018.

Local non-residential Volunteers
Madhyamaka KMC can only benefit others with the kindness and support of volunteers and you are welcome to spend time volunteering.
Even a small amount of time can make an enormous difference and is lots of fun! Hours are totally flexible around your schedule – you can volunteer as little or as often as your life allows.
