Join the movement to end T1D once and for all.

JDRF volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, bringing with them a variety of skills and experiences. Without their hard work and passion the research breakthroughs accomplished to date would not have been possible.

Volunteer Impact

Each year thousands of volunteers lend their time and talents in support of turning type one into type none, and we have a wide variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities available. Regardless of your volunteer role, your contribution will result in real-world change.

How You Can Help

When it comes to volunteering, the options really are endless. Check out the ways below to discover the best way to contribute. Think about your personal goals, interests and strengths—and don’t be afraid to get creative and come up with your own unique ways to contribute.


Whether you register guests at a gala, pass out t-shirts at the Walk, or set up a silent auction, you’ll meet great people and play a part in our mission.


As an advocacy volunteer you get to make your voice heard across Canada in support of ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the most pressing issues for the type 1 diabetes community.

Corporate/Group Volunteering

Volunteering as a group is a great team-building opportunity. It helps boost morale and provides corporate groups an opportunity to align their brand with an important Canadian cause.

Youth Ambassadors

If you are between the ages of 4 and 18 and want to share your type 1 diabetes (T1D) story, come join our program! Our JDRF Youth Ambassadors inspire their communities, increase awareness of T1D, and join hundreds of kids across the country to fundraise for a cure!


By serving on a JDRF committee–whether it’s auction procurement, sponsorship, logistics or planning–you’ll partner with JDRF employees to facilitate events that raise millions for T1D.

Operational Support

From office support to event planning, your talents can make a huge difference in support of our mission.
