Help Reach Out to Families Looking for Support through JDRF’s Mentorship Program!

March 24, 2011

The JDRF Mentorship Program matches individuals and families looking for support with others that have lived with diabetes. However we need your help to do it!

We are especially looking for Spanish speaking mentors and parents who have a child between the ages of 1 to 12 years old living with diabetes.

If you would like to help out, please join us at our Mentor Training Session on Sunday, April 17, 2011. JDRF Mentors are the voices of experience and hope for those facing an unfamiliar lifestyle after diagnosis or during a new stage of their child’s life. It’s about sharing, helping, listening, and new friendships with people who understand the ever-changing demands of living with type 1 diabetes.

As a mentor you will be responsible for contacting families who are looking for support and resources. The training session will be led by JDRF Mentor Chairs, Jeanine Connolly and Anoma Amereskera. They will give you all the tools and information you will need to be successful in this important volunteer role. We hope that you can join us!
