Jobs and Volunteering Opportunities

Offering Service
The best motivation is the goal to benefit others.

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Why offer service ?

  • To become more involved in this amazing and evolving philanthropic organization.
  • To join a great family of people who share Rinpoche’s vision of enlightenment for all sentient beings, and who work to make that a reality in their own lives and in the lives of those around them.
  • To have the satisfaction of working for the benefit of others, not for money or fame.
  • To have an opportunity to work and live in different places in the world.
