BCIMS is a non-profit volunteer organization that runs mostly through the efforts of community members. We seek to integrate mindfulness into our volunteer work, and we see volunteering as as an opportunity to practice mindfulness with like-minded people.


We are seeking to build a consistent and stable volunteer pool. We want to have well trained and enthusiastic volunteers help other people experience the joy of the dharma.


We welcome your involvement as a valued member of our volunteer pool.
