Home > News & events > News > Become a JDRF Youth Ambassador
We will work with the Ambassadors to give them the confidence to talk about their own experiences with type 1, while learning valuable life skills along the way.
There are three different roles available:
Hayley Anderson, Director of People and Operations at JDRF said: “We’re delighted to be launching our new-look Youth Ambassador Programme. Not only will this programme benefit those who take part, it will also help other young people living with type 1 to feel less isolated. I’d encourage all young people who want to make a difference to their local community to get involved.”
Josie Newth, JDRF Youth Ambassador said: “I remember the moment I first wanted to share my voice. I was a week into my diagnosis, overwhelmed by the information being thrown at me. I began looking through YouTube to try and find other people living happy, fulfilling lives with type 1. I didn’t manage to find any videos. I felt so alone.
“I decided then that I was going to fill that gap. The Youth Ambassador programme is a platform that allows me to share my stories, to spread awareness of diabetes, to connect and build community.”
We’re pleased to announce the appointment of two new Board Directors, Nadia Swann and Sarah Johnson.
A lot has happened over the last 12 months at JDRF, and in the world of type 1 diabetes as a whole. From research breakthroughs to herculean fundraising efforts, here’s a retrospective of everything we’ve been celebrating in 2022.
