JDRF 2023 Children’s Congress Application


JDRF 2023 Children’s Congress, our 12th biennial event held for youth ages 4 – 17 living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 26 – 28, 2023. More than 160 youth from across the country and around the globe will have the unique and empowering opportunity to meet with Members of Congress and other Federal decision-makers to shine a light on the day-to-day experiences of life with T1D and advance our key issues.

Why should you apply to represent our JDRF Kansas & Missouri Chapter at JDRF 2023 Children’s Congress? In addition to making an impact on Capitol Hill, you’ll build lifelong friendships with other youth with T1D, meet inspiring T1D Role Models, develop leadership skills, and learn how to take your advocacy work to the next level!
