It is comprised of meeting spaces, a large professional kitchen, dormitories, a bookstore, a library, an art gallery, a swimming pool, and rental units. DRBI is a charitable, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that is inspired by the peaceful and unifying teachings of the Bahá’í Faith.
“This is worship, to serve mankind and to minister to the needs of the people”. –‘Abdu’l- Bahá
In the Bahá’í Faith, being of service is an extremely important and blessed gift, but you don’t have to be a Bahá’í to offer it. At DRBI you can assist the Institute through a variety of ways:
- Program and events coordination
- Marketing assistance
- Agricultural program assistance
- Radio station administration
- General administration
Here are just a few of the wonderful volunteers at DRBI.
