Volunteer Opportunities

Working together as a community builds heartfelt connections. Committee membership is a fulfilling way to extend loving kindness to our sangha members, our community, and our world. It's also a great way to connect with like-minded people. Whether you're new to IMCC or a longtime member, we need your help. If you feel you've benefited from our programs, we invite you to put your spiritual practice into action by volunteering your efforts. 

There are several ways to do this:

Tuesday Sangha Meeting Set-Up

We always need people to help set up the room before our Tuesday night meetings, which start at 7:30pm and end at 9pm.

Arrive 15 minutes early, stay 15 minutes late, and work as a team to:

  • Move tables and arrange chairs

  • Set up and take down sound system

  • Replace tables and chairs and do minor cleanup

These simple tasks are a critical part of holding this weekly sangha meeting.


Tuesday Sangha Meeting Greeters Program


Welcoming newcomers to our sangha meeting is a natural expression of the loving kindness that characterizes Insight meditation. The registered sangha members who are part of our greeters program help create a friendly environment for all.

Arrive at 7, finish by 9:15, and work with the greeters team to:

  • Set up and take down the IMCC information tables (flyers, name tags, etc.)

  • Recognize and speak to newcomers, guide them to the name tag table, and answer questions

Retreat Volunteers

Assist with check-in, setup, and takedown on an ad hoc basis for one of our retreats or other special events.

Board Committees

We have several active board committees that need volunteers. Committees include Communications, Outreach, Community Building, Fundraising, and Finance. Bring your expertise and apply it on behalf of IMCC and become more connected with the sangha and in our community.

If you are interested in volunteering please email Phil Dupont.
