American Youth Understanding Diabetes Abroad (AYUDA)

AYUDA empowers youth to become agents of change in diabetes communities around the world. Our innovative peer learning model uses international volunteers as catalysts for motivating young people living with diabetes to live happy and healthy lives. We work in partnership with in-country organizations and are dedicated to supporting diabetes communities to develop and implement sustainable programs. Emerging out of Latin America, we currently work in the Dominican Republic.
