Welcome to Young and T1 (YT1), a BC based and volunteer run organization for young adults living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our goal is to provide a social network for people living with T1D during and after their transition into adulthood.
YT1 members can connect with each other online in this Facebook group and through a variety of local events held throughout the year. We are actively involved in group-volunteering activities for local diabetes organizations, supporting T1D research initiatives, mentoring younger individuals living with T1D, and creating resources that benefit the lives of all people living with T1D.
Our YT1 team participates in physical activity events throughout the province, and we are also actively involved in campaigning for improvements to BC’s health care system. We host parties, symposiums, and other social events & get-togethers throughout the Lower Mainland and we listen to what our members want so that we can plan diverse activities that cater to as many interests as possible.
Please check out our website for YT1 updates, info on past/future events, and links to many important educational & financial resources.
Welcome to a community who gets the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ of life with T1D! We can’t wait to meet you 🙂
