NEDIC relies on the support of our dedicated team of volunteers to supplement our work in the community and online.
Please note that due to the high volume of volunteer applications only individuals selected for an interview will be contacted.
Volunteer applications are accepted online. No phone calls or walk-ins, please.
NEDIC welcomes volunteer applications from students, people who have been affected by eating disorders (recovered), persons with disabilities and members of marginalized communities.
All volunteer positions report to Ary Maharaj, Outreach & Education Coordinator.
Outreach & Education Volunteers represent NEDIC in a variety of ways – providing public education and professional development about eating disorders, food and weight preoccupation, and body image to members of the public within the Greater Toronto Area. This is a rewarding opportunity for an outgoing and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about preventing eating disorders and is a skilled public speaker who enjoys working with others. Experience working with children and youth is an asset.
Research Volunteer At NEDIC, we are committed to providing the public with up-to-date information relating to food and weight preoccupation and eating disorders. We are seeking skilled research volunteers to help us collect this information and tailor it to our outreach audiences. This is a rewarding opportunity to contribute to public education and professional development around the topic of eating disorders.
