The Insight Meditation Community of
Charlotte depends on volunteers to carry out its mission of making the Buddha's
teachings available to all who seek them. Volunteering is an opportunity to
extend loving kindness to your sangha, the community and the world. Volunteering is an important way to give dana
(Pali for generosity) to the sangha; it can open the heart and
enrich your life. Volunteering also is a way to meet other sangha members.Whether
you are new to IMCC or a longtime member, we need your help. If you have gained value from our sangha and programs we offer, please consider giving your time and energy and
taking your practice off the mat and into the community.
There are several ways to volunteer:

Prepare the Chapel for
the meeting (Coordinators may serve as often as they choose – once a month

people as they arrive
the mic and the lights during meditation, the dharma talk, and the Q&A time
