Youth Ambassador Program

The Breakthrough T1D Greater Iowa Chapter is excited to announce our new Youth Ambassador Program!

Our Youth Ambassador Program is a program for 5-18 year olds with type 1 diabetes (T1D) that are willing to share their story and experience for others to gain a better understanding of the disease and its complications. The goal of this program is to share with our community firsthand why we fundraise for a cure.

Chosen Ambassadors will begin their responsibilities on July 1, 2017 and end June 30, 2018. Responsibilities and their respective dates are outlined on the application. These responsibilities include helping steward corporate partners, participating in our One Walk, acting as a Ride Ambassador for our Greater Iowa Team Riders, providing a silent auction basket for our Gala, and participating in the Ambassador Photo-shoot.

This program is a great opportunity for more involvement within Breakthrough T1D, will look great on a college application, provide service hours, give experience for Children’s Congress, and will help our community better understand T1D.

An online application is available at or mail in paper Youth Ambassador Application to the Breakthrough T1D office at 3580 EP True Pkwy, Suite 101, West Des Moines, IA 50265. Applications are due May 22, 2017 and Ambassadors will be announced May 26, 2017. By submitting an application, you are committing to completing all assigned tasks as outlined.
