Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself


Event Volunteer Training

October 21, 2016
06:30 pm - 08:30 pm

    Do more than belong: participate.  ​Do more than care: serve. 
    Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind.
Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.    
        —William Arthur Ward


Through volunteering:
• you enter a path of service where your service is your practice and your practice is service
• build a greater sense of sangha
• serve your local Dharma community
• practice generosity
• deepen your practice by exploring relationships between you and others
• get to the center on a regular basis

In addition, volunteers attend that event for free.
Remember: NYI is almost entirely volunteer-run and generosity is vital to the existence of this community.

Prerequisite: Please have attended at least one NYI event before attending the training.
