Volunteer Internships for High School and College Students

Join our volunteer grassroots effort to make dining inclusive and safe for all college students with food restrictions. We provide motivated students with the platform and mentorship they need to make a difference!


GFF Student Advocates help shape our strategy and find creative, effective ways to increase awareness and advocate for change. Our current team greatly improved our college dining survey resource, launched our new Instagram, and partnered with food vendors for giveaways. They are right now working hard to:

  • Get more feedback from college students with food restrictions about their campus dining programs and help them advocate for improvements

  • Create meaningful content for our new @gfreefriends Instagram and manage the posting process

  • Monitor news sites for relevant stories to then share with our community

  • Encourage college newspapers to investigate what it’s like for students with food restrictions on their campuses 

  • Collaborate with other celiac and food allergy organizations to increase our impact

  • Cultivate vendor relationships and run product giveaways

  • Continue to apply their own personal strengths while learning new skills



  • Ability to work both independently and in a team environment

  • Strong communication skills

  • Commitment to being responsive and up-to-date on team activities 

  • Educated on the content of our website and social media

  • Always kind, inclusive, and professional!



  • Social media experience (e.g. Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn)

  • Comfortable with Google Workspace (e.g. drive, docs, sheets)

  • Canva experience (or willingness to learn)
