Calling all young professionals in the Greater Pittsburgh Area! Are you looking for a place to network, connect, and support a good cause with likeminded people? The Emerging Leaders Committee may be for you!

About the ELC:

The Emerging Leaders Committee (ELC) is a group of young professionals dedicated to JDRF and its mission: accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.

The committee hosts a wide range of opportunities for members to get involved and make a difference, including volunteering, fundraising, networking, and social events. Members of the ELC range between the ages of 21 and 40, with and without type 1 diabetes. The group works in partnership with the Western and Central Pennsylvania Chapter and its Board of Directors and is given the opportunity to take part in the inception, planning, and ultimate success of events throughout the year aimed towards raising both funds and awareness for JDRF and T1D.

JDRF is the leading global organization focused on T1D research, and approximately 80 cents of every dollar given to JDRF is allocated to diabetes research and education. By being a part of the ELC of Western and Central Pennsylvania, you will have a direct impact on finding a cure for T1D. We are committed to keeping the momentum high until a cure is found.
