Young Leadership Committee

The Young Leadership Committee is a group of young professionals dedicated to raising funds and awareness for JDRF.  The committee, based in New York City, hosts various fundraising events that attract hundreds of young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40.  Members of the Young Leadership Committee are asked to attend meetings where they are given the opportunity to take part in the inception, planning and ultimately the success of several social functions throughout the year aimed at raising both funds and awareness for JDRF.  Additionally, the committee hosts occasional networking and social gatherings at area restaurants or bars to foster an environment of year-round involvement.
