Volunteering at the Temple for World Peace!
Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to experience a spiritual community and benefit the people who visit this blessed place. Good hearts can change the world! Join the KMC Brazil community to bring more peace to all people.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The Volunteering Working Visits (VWV) works like this: you work for 6 days a week and have a day off to enjoy classes, relax and socialize with visitors and residents.
The work is varied and it can include cleaning, preparing accommodations, housekeeping, maintenance services, helping with meal preparation, welcoming visitors, helping in the shop and Café, etc.
We also have projects to build and improve our facilities, so if you have specific skills (eg. skills in construction, maintenance, electrical, etc.) they are most welcome. Let us know about your talents!
KMC Brazil offers free accommodation and food during the volunteering period. For this, you must complete 6 hours of volunteering per day.
