Volunteering at KSC is one of the best ways to build up the merit required to advance on the path to enlightenment. Please use the form below to volunteer for work at Kagyu Shedrup Chöling. We will contact you as soon as possible to confirm the work schedule with you.
60/60 members and people who have made an arrangement to provide volunteer hours in exchange for teachings from Lama Karma Chötso will be able to accrue volunteer hours during the volunteer work days.
Volunteer activities include: gardening, house-cleaning, painting, stupa maintenance, shrine care, butterlamp and offering bowl cleaning and polishing, running errands for the Lamas, household repairs and maintenance, shopping, and photocopying. KSC has developed a volunteer sign in sheet so we can track hours and we will be sending email confirmations and thanks to all who sign up.
The main tasks are:
Mop Dining room floor. Clean windows of shrine room and dining room, both inside and outside. Wipe down surfaces in shrine room, dining room and kitchen. This job needs to be thorough, i.e. removing all items that are in the way and then returning them to proper locations, as well as treating the vertical surfaces, not just the horizontal.
Pressure wash front and back walkways, including steps outside the dining room. Weed the beds along the western wall, in front of Lama’s cottage, and in front of center. Scrub cottage deck, remove wedge in stones, and refinish with oil. Clean the stupas and the paths.
Sweep floors in bedroom, living room and kitchen. Vacuum rugs in livingroom. Clean and restock fridge. The list is on the calendar in the kitchen.
