FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE   It is important to us that no one feel unable to attend a program due to financial circumstances. People with limited financial means can reduce the cost of attending a program at Indralaya by helping on daily staff. Partial scholarships are also available. Please apply for fee assistance by contacting the residents or registrar.

WORK TRADE OPTIONS   The successful operation of our programs relies on volunteer support and guest staffing. Work trade (daily staff) positions are available at all of our regular programs. Program participants age 13 and older are welcome to apply. These positions provide a $25 per day discount in exchange for approximately  3  hours of work each day, and may also include a regular after-meal cleanup assignment.

People on daily staff will be asked to help out where they are most needed. You may find yourself in the kitchen, in the garden, or on bathroom cleanup detail, for example. While we do all we can to avoid conflicts between being on daily staff and fully participating in the program, this is not always possible, particularly for those who are helping in the kitchen. Daily staff positions are often still available upon arrival. Ask the registrar.

FELLOWSHIP STAFF If you would like to pursue a deeper and more intensive commitment to Indralaya, consider applying for a fellowship position. These positions require a minimum commitment of two consecutive weeks. Individuals must be 18 or older to be eligible for a Fellowship position.

Fellowship staff may be assigned to a wide array of duties, which might include cooking, gardening, maintenance, cleaning, transportation, or office work. We are looking for people who are interested in working in a community dedicated to a theosophical way of life. In return for approximately 5 hours work a day with day off per week, Indralaya provides food, housing, and everlasting gratitude in addition to waiving all program expenses. The cooperative spirit and energies of the fellowship staff are essential to making the ideals of Indralaya a reality.

If you are interested, please contact us to request an application form.
