INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT AND THE MISSION AS A STUDENT VOLUNTEER
RFSU Uppsala has, for many years, educated younger teenagers in schools about safe and consensual sex, sexuality and gender identity, relationships, and reproduction. This year, RFSU Uppsala has started a new branch - RFSU Student – to strengthen University student’s freedom and rights to their reproductive and sexual health.
THE STUDENT VOLUNTEER GROUP
As a volunteer for RFSU Student Uppsala, you will meet students in more casual settings such as student bars, day time events and at pubs, and talk about sex, condoms, sexually transmitted infections and HIV, consent and communication. The group of volunteers will consist of about 10-20 people. In addition to attending these events, you as a group will also arrange these events and will therefore be able to decide what kinds of event you as a group are interested in arranging.
*During the Covid-19 pandemic. We will focus on other options such as digital events, online quizzes and lectures, and writing and publishing articles in student magazines, rather than going to student bars and day time events.
For this project, we are looking for young adults, preferably students, who want to join us in spreading knowledge and information about condoms, sexually transmitted infections and HIV, consent and sex to students in Uppsala. Do you like meeting new people, talking about sex and relationships and want to contribute to something important for our whole community? This is your chance!
This is also a great opportunity for all students living in Uppsala who don't speak Swedish to engage in these questions, as this project will reach out to all students in Uppsala, including international students. Swedish speakers are also welcome to join, but all meetings and planning will be in English.
