    Diabetes Youth Auckland is managed by a volunteer committee of parents with children/teens who have diabetes. We employ a Youth Manager part-time to manage events, camps and communications so volunteers are an important part of our organisation. Many of our volunteers have a child with type 1 diabetes, however we are also welcome help from your family, friends and colleagues. We also always need volunteer medical staff for camps and events along with young adults with diabetes who can act as role models, mentors and group leaders.

    There are many ways to get involved from fundraising, to helping at events, to being on the Diabetes Youth Auckland committee. If you are interested in volunteering please contact our Youth Manager on 0508 DIABETES or email
