Signing up & information

We want to offer students opportunities to tell their views and experiences on mental health and studying, to give and receive peer support, and to promote a mental health-friendly atmosphere in student communities. 

In order to volunteer you must be over 18 years old and a student. We can make some exceptions, for example if you have recently graduated or your studies has been temporarily interrupted for any reason. Currently all of our volunteer activities take place online.

Unsure if you can volunteer? Contact our volunteer specialist.

How do I sign up?

  1. Check out our volunteer assignments.
  2. Read the information on this page.
  3. Sign up here!

As a volunteer, you get:

  • a chance and resources to improve students’ well-being – and yours too!
  • guidance from Nyyti’s employees
  • an invitation to Nyyti’s volunteer community on Discord
  • invitations to additional training courses in English when organized
  • a certificate and reference of your time as a volunteer if you want one

Some degrees may require volunteer work as part of their course curriculum, it is possible to do some hours with us. If you have a need for a specific amount of hours during a specific time period, please contact our specialist directly.

You can participate whenever you have time. Open volunteer assignments are shared with our volunteers monthly through our internal newsletter, which you will start to receive when becoming a volunteer. We expect that you’ll keep your end of the agreement – if it turns out that you can’t complete an assignment, please let us know as soon as possible.

Some of our volunteer activities, especially the ones regarding peer support, require some orientation sessions before the actual assignment. However, you can always get guidance and support regarding any
volunteer work you do for us from our employees. Book a meeting with us – we are here for you!

If you’re given access to any login details, passwords, or other confidential information, be sure to only use them for your Nyyti volunteer duties and keep them safe from everyone else. Names, email addresses, and completed assignments and hours etc. will be stored in our register for sending newsletters, feedback etc. and connecting volunteer partners with each other.
