The Body Positive teaches young people to creatively transform and improve their relationships to food and body image.  Come for a day of video box stuffing. This organization is always in need of volunteers shipping their videos.

The Body Positive is a national organization that offers a variety of resources and programming to teach and inspire youth and adults to value their health, unique beauty, and identity so they can use their vital resources of time, energy, and intellect to make positive changes in their own lives and in the world.

Their ultimate goal is to end the harmful consequences of negative body image: eating disorders, depression, anxiety, cutting, suicide, substance abuse, and relationship violence. We are especially concerned about poor body image in teens and young adults. With the inspiration and skills provided by The Body Positive, those who work with them are free to live balanced, joyful, and purposeful lives, and surmount the major obstacles to achieving their academic goals and healthy relationships.

They find great joy in supporting individuals as they practice self-love and create a peaceful relationship with their bodies. They also delight in teaching high school and college students, educators, professionals, and activists to use their engaging curricula to create Be Body Positive programs in their schools, community organizations, and treatment practices.
