Serve with a Team

Because the M.A. Center is volunteer-run, seva teams are an essential part of the life of the Center. Many teams serve throughout the year, while some gather semi-annually to serve at Amma’s Bay Area programs.

Be part of something bigger. 

Serve

Help with a special event or serve on a regular basis, often with the same team members. Start with a few scheduled shifts. If it works for you and your team, you can also take on planning and leadership tasks as you go.

Coordinate

While smaller teams are often simply cooperative groups, some of the larger seva teams are coordinated by several people.

 

As you gain experience with a particular area, consider whether you might be able to serve by coordinating a team.

Make a lasting difference with your service. Find community within your team. Develop your skills, and on some teams, your muscles!

COMMUNICATIONS

During Amma's programs

The Communications Team invites volunteers to serve with us. We are a close group that provides service to the M.A. Center by both working with the public and facilitating communication between seva teams.

 

This seva has a minimum 4-hour commitment with on-the-job training. We work in Amrita Hall in the upstairs library, where it can often be quiet, followed by busy periods.

 

Hope you can join us!

 

GREEN TEAM

During Amma's programs

Here's an easy way to do your part for the environment. Keep M.A. Center green by taking out and sorting compost, recycling, and trash. Fulfill Amma’s teachings about caring for Nature while enjoying some fresh air. 

 

This is a local tour staff position. Ask for more information when you sign up.

LAUNDRY

During Amma's programs

Keep the Snack Shops, kitchen, and bathrooms supplied with clean linens. Do laundry either at a local Laundromat or your home.

 

Pick up the laundry, wash, dry, and fold it, then return it ready for another round. A great way to serve if you live nearby.

PARKING TEAM

During Amma's programs

Guide guests to parking lots and help them park. If you like to be outdoors and are a good communicator, this is the seva for you!
