Project Contributor

This project involves the development and implementation of a national mentor programme to support and encourage young people with Diabetes to become leaders and mentors within the diabetes community in New Zealand, as well as in the wider community. Diabetes NZ will support the implementation of this project, working to develop and run workshops, camps and online training to prepare a group of ‘youth leaders’ to become mentors and leaders. These trainees will be matched with mentees who live with diabetes and benefit from having an older ‘buddy’ for support and mentorship.
