The New York City Young Leadership Committee (YLC) is a direct extension of the NYC Chapter of JDRF – one of the nation’s leading non-profits, and an indomitable force in the fight against Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). The YLC is comprised of ambitious young professionals in the greater NYC region, who share the same purpose in treating, preventing, and ultimately curing T1D. Our approach is simple: Put the “Fun” back into fundraising, through various events throughout the year where we bring together a bunch of great individuals for exciting and meaningful events.
Check out YLC President, Andrew Mika, featured in a short documentary brilliantly produced by IVY. It takes you through his journey from diagnosis to advocate on Capitol Hill to YLC President. The video highlights the obstacles we all face in managing our chronic illness but also reminds us of the unique opportunity for those in the YLC to further the mission of JDRF and everyone with T1D.
