What is Dia-Buddies and how to join:
Dia-Buddies is a joint Carb DM JDRF youth mentor program that will bring together teens (ages 14-19, diagnosed a minimum of 2 years) with children, tweens, and teens, (ages 10-16), in fun social settings. At each Dia-Buddies event, mentors will organize and run a variety of activities, thereby serving as role models for the buddies.
By adopting a group approach instead of the traditional one-on-one mentor-mentee relationship, the program allows mentors and buddies to foster relationships organically, giving everyone more opportunities to make connections and expand their network or support.
Anyone between the ages of 10-16, whether newly diagnosed or not, including siblings, is welcome to enroll as a mentee in the program. Sign up here to be a buddy in the program. Because of the group format, buddies can become unofficial mentors as well. Your knowledge and experience are a valuable asset to the group!
Anyone between the ages of 14-19 who have had diabetes for at least 2 years are welcome to sign up to be a mentor. Mentors will be asked to take an online training and help lead activities of their choosing at our monthly programs.
