Who are JDRF Outreach Volunteers?
JDRF Outreach Volunteers have a personal connection to T1D. They are caregivers, spouses and other adults who either have T1D themselves—or have a loved one affected by the disease. All of our volunteers understand how overwhelming it can be to adapt to the daily demands of managing T1D—and they are here to help get you through it.
How to connect with a JDRF Outreach Volunteer
Once you make a request, a JDRF Outreach Volunteer will reach out to you. In addition to providing an empathetic ear, your volunteer can also help introduce you to your local T1D community at JDRF events where you may even build some long-lasting friendships! Either way, you’ll be welcomed into the JDRF family with open arms, as we come together to lessen the daily burden of T1D until there is a cure.
