Here's those brief descriptions of what we are looking for:

S.H.I.E.L.D Team (can't have S.W.O.R.D without S.H.I.E.L.D!): S.H.I.E.L.D Agents are our protectors during our monthly events! This role is perfect for you if you have a busy schedule but would like to volunteer once a month or when you're able to.

About TYPE ZERO FOUNDATION INC

Location:

2560 BULLION LOOP, SANFORD, FL 32771, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote diabetes awareness and physical activity in Central Florida thorough every-day support.

Description

Type Zero Foundation was originally founded as a high school by Christina Martin, when she was a student. A few years later, it became an official non-profit organization to help the whole family system find strength and hope in living with any form of diabetes. We target the areas of our mission through our support program, dance and sports program, and our mentorship program. Most importantly, we like to find positivity and community in everything we do!

Support Program: People join Type Zero by joining our Facebook group, Diabetes Support Orlando. From there, we hold welcome sessions with each new member to best understand how to support them and we put together fun outings to bring our Diatribe together!

Dance & Sports: We perform dance routines that tell stories about diabetes as a way to spread awareness. Our sports program is a way for kids, with or without diabetes, to feel empowered to be their own strongest advocates.

Mentorship: People with any form of diabetes who are newly diagnosed or not confident with their diabetes, get matched with someone who is!
