Our school flourishes because of the generosity of our community.

The Dharma School volunteer community is at the heart of all that we accomplish. We’re immensely grateful to those who generously offer their time and skills- whether it be at supporting our teachers with in-class reading activities, rolling up your sleeves at our garden working bees, assisting with Monday afternoon Chai, or donating your professional expertise to our strategic projects- we couldn’t do it without you! If you think you’ve got the time or even a great idea, please reach out to us. 

Current Volunteering Roles

  • Pro Bono volunteering opportunities

The Board has specific projects requiring expert input. A number of experts have generously offered their time, professional expertise, and skill free of charge to advance the Dharma School by working on a specific project. Pro Bono Professionals is a new Board initiative, recruiting a number of experts to work for the Board. It is backed by a new Board policy and HR procedure.

We are so grateful for pro bono contributions from expert friends in the areas of logistics over many years.

If you have expertise in an area and would like to register for Pro Bono Projects, please contact us
