Project HEAL offers a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the United States (U.S.). PH Volunteers represent us in their local community, help us plan for local program delivery, and fundraise to support our national treatment and recovery resources. If you have a passion for helping people affected by eating disorders, we likely have a volunteer opportunity for you!

Any prospective Project HEAL volunteers with a personal history of an eating disorder should be in a strong and active recovery for 1-2 years, depending on the specific opportunity of interest. For those with personal experience of an eating disorder—there is a 2-year active recovery requirement to volunteer as a Mentor, COH Group Facilitator, or National Volunteer; there is a 1.5-year active recovery requirement to volunteer as a National Ambassador.

If you have questions about this policy, please email Project HEAL’s Director of Volunteer Services, Ali Hougnou (ali@theprojectheal.org).


Become an Ambassador

Project HEAL Ambassadors champion and advocate for those in their local community in a way that is flexible to meet the interests, needs, and bandwidth of each volunteer. Ambassadors make a commitment to promote the mission and values of Project HEAL in their local communities and on college/university campuses throughout the United States (US). Ambassadors support Project HEAL’s programs (Communities of HEALing + Treatment Access Program) by volunteering on their own or with a group of people who can choose to fundraise for Project HEAL, offer recovery talks, and educate their community about eating disorders and recovery resources, including those offered by Project HEAL.
