Currently Seeking Volunteers to help Transcribe Teachings

  • Experience is a plus, however not necessary
  • Please contact Info@Ngakpa.org if you would like to help

Volunteering for Ngakpa Intl.

Ngakpa Intl is organized, run and sustained by generosity. All events and centers are run by volunteers who serve with altruistic aspirations. The support volunteers offer is the force of kindness behind the evolution, organization, and manifestation of the teachings and activities we share. All of the volunteer efforts are extremely valuable and deeply appreciated.

Volunteering can be a joyful way to serve others, help manifest the dharma, give back to the school, participate in and get to know the community, share your gifts, talents and leadership, and to explore the teachings and practices.

Volunteers start working on projects just after meeting us, finding us through the web, or after being involved for some time. Whether you have only a few hours or can offer your talent and services in an ongoing way, your help makes a huge difference. Some volunteers are from northern California, near our headquarters, many others lend their help from afar.
