Volunteer Service Contribution

Those experiencing financial hardship may contribute local volunteer hours to cover all or part of the Course Fee:

  • 40 hours of service = full applicable Course Fee covered

  • 20 hours of service = half applicable Course Fee covered

  • 10 hours of service = quarter applicable Course Fee covered

You choose the volunteer organization. Its purpose must be directly related to relief of human suffering in the tri-state area (e.g., a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, hospital, nursing home).

Here are some helpful resources for finding a volunteer opportunity:

Prior to starting service, you are required to apply for volunteer service using the 'APPLY' button below. Once your application is approved, you must complete the volunteer hours prior to the starting date of the course. If you are currently a volunteer, these hours must be in addition to your current volunteer work. Volunteer hours must be confirmed by a volunteer organization supervisor in writing.


Full or partial scholarships are available upon application for those students who cannot pay the course fee or volunteer due to disability. For more information, email us at info@thespringmeditation.com.
