Volunteering at IMC is a great way of supporting and participating in the practice life of our center. It also a good way to meet other people practicing in our center.

All the work that keeps IMC running smoothly is done by volunteers. This means that it is those who practice who care for the practice place. It also means that there is not a sharp division between “us” and “them” who run the place. IMC is our shared practice home. If you see small things that need to be done, we encourage you to act on any impulse you have to take care of it. So, if a bathroom is low on toilet paper, you are most welcome to get more from the closet. If a trash can is full, we appreciate anyone taking the initiative to empty it.

For those who have the interest and ability, we have many volunteer positions. And because we have so many volunteers, positions are often in flux. This means that we can expect that things don’t always get taken care of in a timely fashion.
