About YLC

The Greater New York City Young Leadership Committee (YLC) is a direct extension of the Chapter and an unstoppable force in the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D). The YLC is a group of young business and civic professionals who actively support JDRF and T1D research. Our members have unique ties to T1D – many live with it, others are connected through friends or family, and some simply have a passion for the cause. The common thread: we all want to turn type one into type none.

Through hosting a variety of social, educational, and fundraising events, the Greater New York City YLC seeks to:

  • Create awareness of T1D among Greater NYC young professionals
  • Raise money to fund critical T1D research
  • Build a strong network to support critical T1D funding and education

It is with this support that we move closer to creating a world without T1D. If interested in joining YLC as a member or as part of the Executive Committee, contact:

Upcoming Events:

One Night 2023- June 8th at Somewhere Nowhere NYC

YLC is excited to host One Night 2023 on June 8th at Somewhere Nowhere NYC!

One Night brings passionate leaders in the philanthropic and business communities together for one night, one purpose and one vision…a world without T1D.

One Night is a fun evening filled with cocktails, music, a silent auction, raffle and passed hors d’oeuvres. Over the past 10 years, One Night has raised over 1 million dollars all to support JDRF’s vision of a world without T1D.

Don’t miss the chance to demonstrate your support of JDRF to those that are passionate about improving treatments and finding a cure for T1D! Support JDRF’s mission by purchasing tickets, tables, sponsorships, making a Fund A Cure gift, or donating an auction item. Learn more here.
