Volunteer

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 Chapter Leader, Mentor, Group Facilitator, or National Volunteer; there is a 1-year active recovery requirement to volunteer as a National Ambassador or with a chapter.

*NOTE: As Project HEAL makes some exciting new changes to our volunteer opportunities, we are temporarily not accepting new volunteer applications. Don't worry though, it will only be for a few short weeks! This change will go into effect starting Friday, August 9th, 2019, and be updated no later than Friday, September 9th, 2019.

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

Apply to be an Intern

This past year at Project HEAL, we've had some incredible developments within our programs, and nearly doubled our staff size to expand these programs further. We're working to build a solid foundation for our existing programs, including our intern program, in order to reach more individuals who need these resources. With this in mind, we've made the difficult decision to put a hold on our internship program for the Fall of 2019 and Spring of 2020. The new developments to our intern program will provide a more meaningful experience for not only our interns, but for our organization as well.
