Position: Volunteer Work stay Resident - Client service & catering
Type: volunteer with room, meals, more (see below)
Organization: Bethlehem Centre
Location: Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Spend time in service and self-inquiry at the Bethlehem Centre.

Our vision is “spirituality without borders” and we are located on Westwood Lake in Nanaimo, with big trees, walking paths, and an outdoor labyrinth. The Centre is also home to one of the only peace poles on the Island. We operate year-round and offer our guests opportunities to connect with their spiritual path through programs and events. Our Volunteer Work-Stay Residency program offers you the opportunity to get involved and make a contribution to the vision of this unique spiritual centre on Vancouver Island.

Your role as a work-stay member of our team will have you offering support to our operation in client service and catering every other week. A beautiful room, shared bathroom (with one other live-in resident), a live-in lounge overlooking the lake, and three meals per day are included in this experience that lasts approximately 3 months. Shorter, and possibly longer, terms may be available.

In addition, as a Work-Stay program participant you are welcome to take part in any Bethlehem Centre programs, at no charge, in your free time.

We welcome applications on an ongoing basis for two positions. If there are no positions available when you apply we will keep your name on the waiting list until a spot comes available.

Please send your letter of inquiry with your background and the reason why you would like to be in a position like this at the Bethlehem Centre to Johanne Nicholson, Client Services Coordinator:
