Be a part of the team that’s working to cure diabetes

JDRF San Diego’s dedicated volunteers are an essential part of our team. JDRF is the worldwide leader in funding type 1 diabetes research in large part due to the strength of our volunteer base.

Volunteers have a fundamental role in every area of JDRF. From advocacy on Capitol Hill and here in San Diego County, to helping at Walk, Ride and other outreach and fundraising events, JDRF could not be the organization it is without volunteers.

The San Diego Chapter volunteer task force needs your help!

There are many ways you can make a difference, including:

    • Help out at the office
      We have mailings to stuff, stamps to stick, photos to file, envelopes to seal, media calls to make, and a database to keep up-to-date.
    • Work at an event
      Register guests at a Gala or pass out t-shirts at a Walk. Each year JDRF needs a virtual army of volunteers to make our fabulous special events a success.
    • Serve on a Committee
      Help develop the Chapter’s communications strategy. Be a part of our Outreach Program. Coordinate a Walk site. Help plan our Gala program. Solicit items for our event auctions. Our Committees are critical to our Chapter’s success.
    • Become an Advocate in our Government Relations Program
      Let your voice be heard! Sign up to be an Advocate and contact your elected representatives about diabetes-related policies. Contact us to learn more
    • Donate Through Your Business
      Make a gift of your printing or design services. Contribute your photography skills. Use your public relations firm to help get press for a Chapter event. Donate a company product – or an item for our live and silent auctions.
