VOLUNTEERS ACROSS THE NATION AND AROUND THE WORLD ARE THE KEY TO JDRF'S SUCCESS!
We need your help!
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation was founded in 1970 by parents of children who had diabetes. These founding parents were volunteers and the spirit of volunteerism is what drives everything that JDRF does. The national organization is driven by a volunteer Board of Directors, as is the North Florida Chapter.
Our volunteers perform essential tasks to help us move toward our mission to find a cure for diabetes through research.
The tasks performed by our volunteers are varied, but all are important. Each task performed by a volunteer frees up staff time, so we can write grants, organize an event, write a letter to a donor or speak with a parent of a newly-diagnosed child.
JDRF North Florida volunteers help us in the office by working on mailings, entering data into our databases, proofreading materials, organizing files and many other administrative jobs.
Our volunteers help us at fundraising events, by loading trucks, moving furniture, directing guests, assisting at auctions, working at registration, and many other tasks that make our events successful.
We also appreciate services that are "volunteered" like public relations, consulting, events planning, etc.
Please consider volunteering for JDRF North Florida and helping us fulfill our promise to tens of thousands of kids who have diabetes -- to find THE CURE!
