Our temple need volunteers.
You can volunteer for few hours once a week or once a month at your convenience. You can volunteer and help us in any of the following activities
- Helping at Vidhya Bhavan – We teach Mathematics, Tamil, Nepali & Hindi language, Hindu religion and our culture to youth and children at Vidhya Bhavan. If you have a teaching background or you have managed youth and children’s activities this can be a good volunteering opportunity for you. Others are also welcome to support Vidhya Bhavan activities if you believe that you can be a part of upbringing of our future generation. Vidhya Bhavan also need support for non-teaching related activities for example preparation of teaching material, organizing competition or annual day function of school etc. Please contact Vidhya Bhavan Coordinator if you wish to help us at Vidhya Bhavan.

- In the dining hall and Kitchen – Every Sunday and on the days of other festival and events you can help us in dining hall and kitchen. You can set up the chairs and tables, rinse the spoons and arrange table with water filled glasses. We are using deposable plastic plates in both the temple to serve the food. You can help us to arrange and neatly stake used plats after the Priti Bhoj. Left over food is dumped in garbage bin and used plates are staked together so that we can dispose them using minimum number of garbage bags. You can also help us to clean and manage the kitchen after the Priti Bhoj is served. This can be a good engagement for parents who’s children are attending Vidhya Bhavan on Sunday. While waiting for your child you can volunteer at your temple. This service will help you to overcome one of the five moral evils that is Ahankar (Conceit).
