The JDRF Minnesota Young Leadership Crew (YLC) is a direct extension of the Minnesota Chapter of JDRF – the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The YLC is comprised of ambitious young professionals in the greater Twin Cities area who like to network, have fun, and who share the same goal in treating, preventing, and ultimately curing T1D.

Members of the YLC are given the opportunity to take part in the inception, planning, and ultimately the success of social functions and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Additionally, the committee hosts occasional networking and social gatherings at area restaurants or bars to foster an environment of year-round involvement.

The funds raised through YLC events go to support JDRF and JDRF-funded research aimed at finding better treatments and a cure for people with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
