Youth Ambassadors support JDRF’s mission to improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.
Youth who live with type 1 diabetes and are between the ages of 6-17 are invited to apply for the upcoming program year. Members of this selective group work to increase T1D awareness in the community, volunteer for activities that impact JDRF’s mission, and raise funds to help achieve JDRF’s vision of a world without type 1 diabetes.
In addition to the responsibilities outlined in this overview, Youth Ambassadors will be able to socialize with other youth who live with T1D; seek, or offer, peer support; and have FUN while making new friends and creating memories along the way! Youth Ambassadors will also learn valuable leadership skills, build confidence, and feel empowered. The program’s ultimate goal is that Ambassadors will make a tangible impact in advancing the mission work of JDRF.
