Volunteering

benevoles-web3

All of KMC Montreal’s activities are entirely run by numerous volunteers who work together in order to offer this calm and peaceful place for the benefit of all those who visit. Volunteering is a great opportunity to help the centre and create connections with this lively community.

Below are many ways by which you can contribute to the smooth running of the centre. You can also complete our online volunteer form here. We will then communicate with you.

You can also join the ‘Centre Cherishing / Chérir le centre’ at any time between 9:30am and 12pm on Fridays. See exact dates on the calendar.

For more information, contact us info@meditationamontreal.org.

Thank you!
