Who are Chopra Center Volunteers?
A Chopra Center volunteer is a loving, kind person whose intention is to give back to our world. Our team is comprised of teachers, students, veterans, full-time workers, part-time workers and new retirees; all who are at some point on their journey looking to be surrounded by a community of conscious-minded people while giving back.
What are some of the responsibilities volunteers hold?
A volunteer’s main role is to support the events team by assisting with live events and various office projects. At live events, volunteers support set-up, teardown, guest check-in, and they kindly hold space for our guests to have the best experience. They also support guests and staff inside the session room, during book signings, at daily yoga, and the bookstore to highlight a few. In-office volunteers support the upcoming event by lovingly preparing that event’s program materials, assembling resources, and working on projects specific to that event.
Chopra Center Volunteer Team Opportunities
Do I get to experience or participate in the program while volunteering?
Yes! Experiencing the event is one of the exciting benefits of our volunteer team. Volunteers are considered a member of the staff while on-site. During your shift, your role is to support the needs of guests and staff. Core Team volunteers are given the treat of attending the speaker sessions before or after their shift.
How much does it cost to volunteer? If I live outside the San Diego area, what are my housing options?
Volunteering is FREE and comes with our deepest gratitude. Depending on your shift, we do provide lunch or dinner. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to find their own lodging. Volunteers can take advantage of the Chopra Center’s discounted rate at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, when there is availability. We have many volunteers who come from out of the city, state, and country, so a successful alternative option could be to check out surrounding hotels in the area or using Air BnB.
