How can I help?

As an independent, registered charity, Bodhi College relies on the generosity (dāna) of students, patrons and donors.
To make a financial dāna offering, please see: How to donate. Or if you have time to offer, find out about the practical ways you may be able to volunteer, below:

An opportunity to practice practical dāna

Volunteers are central to our vision and your generosity is a valued dāna offering. We are committed to ensuring that volunteering with us is interesting and enjoyable, and helps to support your practice and exploration of the Dharma.

Current volunteering opportunities

There are three main areas in which we are currently offering volunteering opportunities: marketing, web-mastering and retreat management/support.


We are establishing a team of volunteers based in continental Europe and the US to help with publicising and developing our courses in their home country.
Volunteers in this role carry out email-based promotion and distribution of flyers. This primarily involves identifying and accessing networks of interested people and organisations, building up contact lists, and circulating email flyers and course information.


We are looking for people who can help with work on our Italian and German sites, as well as our forthcoming new French website.
This role involves translating content from English and uploading it directly onto our website. Volunteers should ideally have experience of working with WordPress websites, although support and training is provided.

Retreat co-ordination

A number of our extended courses are running in mainland Europe in 2018-19 and we are looking for experienced retreat managers to oversee the smooth running of modules and retreats in Holland, Germany and France.

You are ideally an experienced practitioner who is keen to participate in our programmes and can provide on-the-ground support of teachers and participants, as well as liaising with the Bodhi College team.

For more information about any of these opportunities, please contact our Director.
