Children and Teen Course
Server Information

Adults who have completed a ten-day course can apply to serve during the children and teen courses. Help is needed in the kitchen, as well as with leading activities for the children.

To ensure a safe environment for all participants, we perform a background check on all volunteers working with minors. A past criminal record will not necessarily disqualify you from serving the course. Further, the results will in no way affect your eligibility for attending or serving adult courses, as background checks are not required for those courses. All results will be kept fully confidential.

If you would like to serve a children's or teens' course:

  1. Read the Code of Conduct for Dhamma Servers
  2. Complete the required application
  3. Once your application has been processed, we will contact you via email with instructions for the background check. All servers must have a current background check on file with the NW Vipassana Center.
    Please apply at least two weeks in advance, so that there is plenty of time to process your application and run the background check.
