Join DRIF Young Leaders

Young Leader Header

The DRIF Young Leaders is a group of motivated and engaged youth charged with increasing awareness of the work of the DRI and sharing the mission with their communities. Members will have an interest and/or connection to diabetes (self, sibling, parent), and find value in engaging with like-minded youth to build the next generation of DRIF supporters and cure advocates.

Here is a list of some Young Leader activities  to expect:

  • Bi-annual meetings
  • Research updates with DRI scientists Diabetes education
  • Special opportunities to support fellow members in different age groups and across the country
  • Potential for volunteer hours and resume-boosting experience

Being a DRIF Young leader gives you the opportunity to learn about what we do at the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) to help end this disease for good. Our young leaders value our mission and community and are committed to educating others on what it is like to live with (or care about someone) who manages diabetes on a daily basis. Through group meetings, educational opportunities, meeting DRI researchers, and activities to support finding a cure, you can Be Part of the Cure.
