The Greater New York City Young Leadership Committee (YLC) is a direct extension of the Chapter and an indomitable 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 you are interested in becoming a member or joining the Executive Committee, please email
