Do I need to know about diabetes?

You don’t need to be a diabetes expert to apply for a position with us! We will teach you everything you need to know in our pre-camp training and we will always pair you up with an experienced staff member. Some of our best staff have started with no diabetes knowledge-the next one could be you!

Year round volunteer opportunities!

DYF is always recruiting volunteers to lend a hand at our numerous year round events. From our Family Retreats to our single day meet-up programs, we are always in need of responsible, fun, and qualified individuals to help make our programs possible.
