Have you ever thought about volunteering with Children and Teens with type 1 diabetes? The Thriveabetes Team needs a volunteer (or two) who would develop the programme for the three age groups but also recruit and manage other volunteers to help on the day.
It is a big responsibility, most difficult one of the whole conference, and may require a significant amount of time but it’s a day that will fill you full of warmth and joy!
Do you think that this is something you would be interested in doing? This role is probably the most difficult one of the whole conference because you don't get the experience of an adult with diabetes hanging out with your peers as much as everyone else.
Youth Programme Development Coordinator Responsibilities
Manage a team of volunteers to assist with programme delivery
Schedule activities for the 3-5 sessions for each of the 3 age groups: 5-8 years, 9-12 years and 13 years+
Must complete the HSE Children First Online Programme and be willing to submit a Garda Vetting Form.
If you are interested in this volunteer role please email me at Grainne@thriveabetes.ie and tell me a little bit about yourself and your experience.
