Fo Guang Shan Volunteer Group – Recruitment for Volunteers

Origin of the Fo Guang Shan Volunteer Group
Fo Guang Shan has established its objective to propagate Buddhism through Buddhist practices, cultural, educational, and charitable work. In the process of implementing Humanistic Buddhism, volunteers play an important role in promoting and protecting the Dharma. Please join us if you are interested.
The establishment of FGS Volunteer Group is to strengthen and consolidate the qualities of the volunteers at Fo Guang Shan Headquarters and its branches, in order to demonstrate the essential qualities of the Fo Guang People. In addition, this has helped the volunteers to strengthen their understanding and faith in Fo Guang Shan. Furthermore, this has also allowed the volunteers to develop a professional learning environment, to exchange their experiences, and to develop their team spirit. Thus, we can enhance the overall features and qualities of Fo Guang Shan.
