Leadership is now known as DYS Connect
Our young adult program is growing and changing – and we have a new name to reflect that! Connect has all of the wonderful qualities of Leadership, but reflects more of who we are. We are all about connections – connections between other type 1s, connections with experienced T1D mentors, and connections with valuable resources. But most of all, Connect is FUN.
Experience how you can meet other young adults with type 1 and make valuable personal connections. DYS Connect is not your typical support group. Connect offers year round activities and many fun programs just for teens and young adults ages 16-22 managing type 1 diabetes. These young adults make friends for a lifetime who understand the challenges they may be facing. Connect is great support system that allows these young adults to have a blast together, but use each other as resources to better manage their diabetes.
The program includes a variety of activities all over our service area. We host fun events, such as kayaking and paintball, holiday parties, and our annual Winter Retreat. The program is designed to get the participants to make valuable personal connections while having a great time doing it!
Are you nervous about attending your first Connect event? INVITE A FRIEND! Connect welcomes each t1d to bring a friend to the events.
