Undergraduate Interns play a significant role at the Multi-service Eating Disorders Association (MEDA, Inc.). We rely on interns to help us accomplish a variety of tasks that allow us to further the mission of the organization. The roles of Undergraduate Interns at MEDA fall into three categories: Events/Communications, Outreach and Programming.
Events/Communications Intern is assigned to work directly with the Communications and Development Coordinator at MEDA. This intern helps MEDA with planning and managing the multitude of events run by the organization throughout the year. Also, integral to MEDA is our social media presence. This intern will gather material to be posted on all of MEDA’s social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
Outreach Intern is assigned to work directly with the Clinical Programs Coordinator at MEDA. This intern helps MEDA to spread the message that full recovery is possible by attending health fairs, being a presence in the community at events, and helping with advocacy efforts, including marketing. This intern will work in conjunction with the Events/Communications and Program Intern to assure that MEDA’s work is known in the community. The person in this role will need access to a car if possible and the ability to at times work flexible hours in the week to attend health fairs, etc.
Program Intern is assigned to work directly with the Executive Director. This intern will help with general office work, including mailings, event preparations, and written communications. Other tasks as delegated by the Executive Director will be assigned
All interns will at times be asked to work on projects outside of their exact position scope. For example, Program and Events/Communications Interns might attend health fairs or all Interns will work at an event or offer feedback on communications. We believe in order to give you the best internship experience that having a more focused position and project will allow you to grow both professionally and personally.
MEDA will accept 3 interns, one per category for each semester (Fall/Winter, Winter/Spring and Summer). The following deadlines apply for submitting an application, cover letter and resume:
