Beyond Celiac Ambassador – Volunteer

Mission: The Reach Beyond Celiac Ambassador Program will empower the celiac community by providing outlets to share their experiences, spread positivity and create change in their communities.

Beyond Celiac—an entrepreneurial non-profit working as a catalyst to drive research toward a  cure for celiac disease by 2030 and provide support to the celiac disease community—is recruiting a second cohort of ambassadors for fall 2021 to help us raise awareness and amplify our message nationally. 

Our Reach Beyond Celiac Ambassadors will focus on inclusion, establishing personal connections and building supportive networks for those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity at every stage of life.

Ambassadors play an important role in allowing us to create awareness and amplify the Beyond Celiac mission. A thoughtfully composed team is a tremendous complement to the effectiveness of our organization as we work together to build a nationwide footprint and volunteer base for Beyond Celiac to help engage, empower, and advocate for individuals and families with celiac disease all across the United States.

As a valued ambassador, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of initiatives across specialty areas based on your unique passions, strengths, and skills—using tools and resources provided by Beyond Celiac. Ambassadors will work both independently and collaboratively on locally driven, network supported community support initiatives designed to drive the Beyond Celiac mission forward. The work will be engaging and have significant social impact while building leadership, strategic planning, collaboration and other skills. If you are energetic, intelligent, and full of big ideas…and you want to make a difference in the world…please apply today!
