Internship, Practicum/Field Study, and Volunteer Opportunities
All three levels of involvement at The Alliance offer the opportunity to learn about all eating disorders outreach, education, early intervention, and advocacy, in addition to a greater understanding of nonprofit operations.
The Alliance offers two levels of unpaid internship: part time, with a required minimum of 15 hours per week and full time, with a required minimum of 30 hours per week. Both levels require that interns be present in the office at least one full day each week, however, some hours can be completed out of the office on assigned projects. Interns are required to participate in Alliance events and weekly supervision, which is currently on Wednesday mornings, with Dr. Joann Hendelman, Clinical Director. Other duties include office administration and operations, volunteer management, and general office maintenance. It is mandatory that interns communicate effectively with Sharon Glynn, Director of Programming, and Dr. Hendelman about the status of their projects. This includes timely completion of project status forms and timesheets submitted weekly. Finally, this internship requires completion of one independent project, which must be pre-approved, to benefit The Alliance. As an intern at The Alliance, you will have the opportunity to participate in some of our weekly support groups and serve on any of our committees, including development, outreach and education, advocacy and more.

The practicum/field study unpaid position is designed for high school and college age students participating in field study and is organized per the requirements of these programs. Hour requirements will be discussed individually with each applicant and while The Alliance can be flexible with how hours are completed, a presence in our office is required at least once a week. This ensures effective communication of project statuses and completion. Duties of this internship are largely administrative and operational and participation in Alliance events is mandatory, including community outreach and education events.
