Youth Ambassadors

The JDRF Pacific Northwest Youth Ambassadors are leaders in the T1D community, ages 8-18, who have a positive outlook on life and T1D. They will have year-round involvement in providing awareness to our community through advocacy, sharing their T1D story and volunteering their time to support JDRF’s mission. Serving as a Youth Ambassador is an incredible opportunity for those who want to use their voice to make a difference in their local community.
