Sharon Allen, Saratoga Program Director, and Volunteer Coordinator
Like any non-profit organization, Buddhist centers require the active participation of volunteers. Because I understand the importance of volunteers, I am pleased to hold several volunteer positions for IMSB. Currently I coordinate the volunteers for IMSB’s programs in Saratoga; I work with Shaila to develop the Thursday Classroom Program; I teach mindfulness and dhamma classes; and I am one of several volunteers who serve as greeters, announcers, and set-up helpers. Volunteering is a wonderful way to get to know other sangha members better. To me, volunteering feels like an act of kindness for those who count on what IMSB has to offer.
