Volunteering at JDRF San Diego

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


The 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.

Join the Team! If you are interested in volunteering, we encourage you to fill out this online form and check with the Christine Rhoads, This email address is being protected from spambots.
