Who we are
YPs Against Diabetes, formed in 2010, is a group of Columbus young professionals committed to advancing the cause of The Central Ohio Diabetes Association (CODA), a local Columbus 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Visit our Facebook page to see pictures from various events we’ve coordinated over the past few years.
To harness the enthusiasm of Columbus’ young professionals through advocacy and fundraising in support of CODA and with a shared goal of improving the lives of people afflicted by diabetes.
To empower and support Columbus’ young professionals in building an organization that maximizes the impact of outreach efforts to all Central Ohioans afflicted by diabetes. We strive to maximize funds raised through YPAD-led fundraising events; to increase diabetes awareness among Central Ohioans through YPAD-led educational programming and outreach; and to offer young professionals the opportunity to become involved in YPAD-related initiatives.
Through YPAD participation, Members will develop an understanding of nonprofit organizational management, create a wide professional network, build strategic and executional skill sets, and achieve a greater appreciation for community and service.
