The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness is a national non-profit organization dedicated to the outreach, education, early intervention, support, and advocacy for all eating disorders.
Founded in October 2000, The Alliance has worked tirelessly to raise awareness; eliminate secrecy and stigma; promote access to care; and support those susceptible to, currently experiencing, and recovered from eating disorders. We create a bridge for those needing and seeking help by connecting people with resources to assist them in recovery.
The Alliance offers comprehensive services, including: educational presentations and training days to schools, healthcare providers, hospitals, and community agencies; free, clinician-led weekly support groups nationwide for those experiencing eating disorders and for their loved ones; support and referrals through both our free help-line and comprehensive referral website; and unique and empowering scale smashing events and SmashTALK panel discussions. In September 2017, The Alliance opened Psychological Services, which offers direct, low-cost, life-saving treatment to underinsured and uninsured adults in the South Florida community.
Over the past 20 years, we have demonstrated our tireless commitment to making a positive impact on communities nationwide.
Alliance volunteers assist in office administration at the headquarters in West Palm Beach and participate in Alliance events. There is no minimum hour requirement for volunteers and we can be flexible to work around individual schedules.
Our volunteers will work closely with interns in supporting them with projects and any other duties they may have. Volunteers will also help with all events, support office needs, and help with small one-off projects.
Volunteers will report directly to the Operations Manager.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis but volunteers will begin at the beginning of each semester with each new group of interns for consistency. After applying, our Operations Manager will schedule a brief interview to discuss the role and next steps (will vary depending on when the application is submitted).
The Alliance is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
