Volunteer Opportunities

Experience the Buddhist Way of Life

Join us for a volunteering visit at Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. What we have to offer is varied and provides a perfect opportunity to experience the warm and friendly Buddhist way of life first hand. Enjoy the tranquil environment, perfect for meditation, contemplation and a break away.

Jobs during a volunteer visit vary from cooking, gardening, decorating, maintenance, cleaning and helping with accommodation. We also have different projects that you could get involved in at various times throughout the year.

If you have particular skills we would love to know. Although the work is not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit.

As a volunteer, you are welcome to join any of the evening or weekend meditation classes running. You are also welcome to join us for daily chanted meditation we hold in the Temple.

In your free time, there are many ways to relax including enjoying the grounds, local tourist sites and long bush walks.

We are a Volunteer-led Organisation

KMC Australia is a non-profit organisation, relying strongly on the efforts of our volunteers.

It doesn’t matter how small a task may seem, each contribution of your time is immensely meaningful.

Everyone is welcome to volunteer. You don't need special skills or experience.

You can offer as little or as much time as you like. Each and every hour of volunteering counts.
