Young Leadership Committee

The Young Leadership Committee (YLC) is a group of passionate and motivated young professionals who believe in JDRF’s efforts to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) while finding ways to improve the lives of individuals living with T1D today. The YLC is dedicated to supporting and raising awareness for JDRF through various fundraising, networking and social events that attract young professionals in the Boston area. Members have a special connection to T1D—whether they live with the disease every day or are connected through a friend or family member.
