JDRF recognizes and celebrates the efforts of its tens of thousands of volunteers nationwide and across the globe who are dedicated to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.
Our volunteers are the backbone and foundation of JDRF since its founding in 1970 by the parents of children with type 1 diabetes. Volunteers are the driving force of more than 100 locations worldwide that raise money and advocate for government spending for type 1 diabetes research.
If volunteering is something you would be interested in, then we have a job for you!
