Young Leadership Committee

JDRF_YLC_285LogoThe JDRF Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter recently implemented the Young Leadership Committee (YLC). The YLC is a group of young professionals dedicated to raising awareness, amplifying the fundraising impact and extending the reach of JDRF in the Southeastern Wisconsin area through the active engagement of local young leaders in our community.

Visit our event page for details about the JDRF YLC Rock the Cure at the Sprecher Brewery!

The YLC hosts various fundraising, networking and social events in the greater Milwaukee area that aim to attract hundreds of young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 dedicated to better treating, curing and ultimately finding a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Since the YLC’s inception in March of 2012, they have hosted many networking events at various bars and restaurants in the Greater Milwaukee area- giving local young professionals the opportunity to connect and network. Networking events are held bi-monthly.

The YLC also hosts an annual signature event which is their major fundraising vehicle. In their two years of holding this event, the YLC has raised over $12,000!

New this year- The YLC will be hosting their first Rock the Cure on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at the Sprecher Brewery. Visit the event site for more information.

The YLC is led by young professionals who have taken an active role in committing to further JDRF’s mission and the reach of the YLC in Southeastern Wisconsin. Check out these links if you’d like to learn more about becoming a member of the executive committee of the YLC:
