Volunteer Visits

Our working visit program is a great way to experience life at IKRC Grand Canyon and to act on your compassion.

In exchange for 35 hours of voluntary work per week, working visitors receive dormitory accommodation, three vegetarian meals per day, and the opportunity to attend daily prayers and General Program classes held at the center.


Jobs vary depending on the season and your skills. Examples include assisting with meal preparation and cleanup, light housekeeping, preparing visitor accommodations, office work, and light yard or garden work.

Note: Health insurance is a must. We will ask to see a driver’s license or other ID upon arrival, and require emergency contact information as part of the application process.
