Dalai Lama Visit: Call Out for Volunteer Applications

Thursday, August 28, 2014

We are delighted to announce that His Holiness The Dalai Lama will be returning to Vancouver for the Heart-Mind Summit.  We invite you to apply to be a volunteer for this engaging event happening on Tuesday, October 21st, 2014.

The Heart-Mind Summit hosted at the Vancouver Convention Centre East, will provide a stage for the Dalai Lama and influential British Columbians – from business, community, education, research and media – to explore what each can do as an individual or as a group to ‘Educate the Heart’ of children and youth.

As a volunteer, you will be an integral part of creating a warm and welcoming space for this 4,000 person summit.  We will provide mandatory training sessions, which will provide you with an opportunity to meet and connect with others, as well as workshops to refresh and gain skills to provide hosting and guest relation services to ensure a sense of community and inclusion at our event.

To apply for a volunteer position, please fill out a volunteer application and send us your resume/CV, so that we may place you where your skills and expertise can be most helpful and for you to have an engaging experience.  Please see our eligibility requirements below and email your application to the Volunteer Coordinator, Tamara Cotton.  I hope you understand that due to timing and the number of applications we receive, only selected applicants will be contacted.

Thank you for your interest in offering your valuable time and skills. Please feel free to forward this letter to others who may also be interested in being involved with this inspiring event.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Warm Regards,

Tamara Cotton

Volunteer Coordinator
