Benefits of Volunteering at KMC

Learn something new and have fun!

As a KMC CO volunteer you will have a chance to stretch your skills and talents. You’ll always have the chance to learn something different, sometimes in as little as a single day. Help at a kids' meditation class; make repairs and improvements to our meditation center or get instructions on how to organize an event. Learn how to serve in a group that helps coordinate future events, retreats or classes; assist with financials or prepare snacks! No matter how you choose to get involved, if you ever wanted to change the world and see the impact of your efforts, we have a place for you.

Live a happier and healthier life

At KMC CO, you’ll find plenty of those satisfying moments that make volunteering such a spiritual lift. And gardening or maintenance work is good exercise!

Research conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health indicates that “volunteering is linked with better mental health, physical health and health behaviors and “people who volunteered spent 38 percent fewer nights in the hospital” than non-volunteers. This Atlantic article cites additional findings that people who volunteer lead longer, healthier lives.”

Share your talents and interests

It just feels good to be valued; our volunteers contribute unique skills, experiences and perspectives. For example, you might be a retired bookkeeper or someone who is great at utilizing social media as a recruitment tool. We want to leverage your skills and help you build more.

Socialize and have an impact

Volunteering can be a fun, meaningful way to make new friends. New to the community? Looking to branch out socially? Simply looking for something to do with new people? Volunteer and get to know others who care about the same cause as you do and together have a real and lasting impact on the world.
