Volunteering

Shakti Peetam & Spiritual Center of NA in Chester Springs, PA USA has been a one hundred percent volunteer driven and managed organization since 1996. The goal is to continue maintaining it this way.

Being a volunteer for Shakti Peetam helps the temple and allows college/high school students to gain exposure and experience to working in a religious, non-profit, charitable, educational, and culturally focused environment. It also aids in adding character to the personality of individuals.

The temple allows individuals many volunteering opportunities for both kids and adults. Please see the list below and fill out the form to join! At the end of the school year, all junior volunteers will be getting a Certificate of Service and Recognition for the kids. This will be an excellent addition to profiles and help kids get into the colleges of their choice.

All volunteers will be observed and evaluated for their leadership, dedication, commitment to completing tasks, communication, problem solving, willingness to serve the society, collaboration, creativity, listening skills.
