Volunteer Committee

Helga’s Volunteer Committee, or Helga Staff,  started in the autumn of 2021. The volunteers will support the Helga board in various practical arrangements. The tasks of the volunteer committee are divided on the basis of one’s own interests and expertise. As a member of Helga Staff, you get to practice e.g. organizing events and you get in touch with the student active’s tasks without committing to an association’s board. As a volunteer, you decide for yourself how much you want to commit and how much time you are willing to put into it.

What is the volunteer committee all about?

The first volunteers began in August 2021 during orientation week. Tasks during the orientation week include e.g. putting coverall packages together, unpacking Helga’s new products, and helping new students on campuses. During Orientation Week, new students usually need help finding classrooms, their tutor, and their classmates.

Volunteering is a new procedure in Helga so if you have any good ideas how to develop the concept we are more than willing to hear you out! If for example you want to write a blog post about student dining, are good at translating and proofreading texts, want to appear in our social media, or you have some other great idea, you can join us as a volunteer and tell us your ideas!

Volunteers have their own messaging group where they can exchange ideas and hear news about volunteering opportunities!

What do you get as a volunteer?

Volunteers will receive training and their own shirts with “Helga Staff” on the back and a special coverall patch which shows that you are a Helga volunteer. When you wear the volunteer shirt, you are representing Helga and you should be ready to answer any questions students may have. 

As a Helga Staff member, you get to develop your own skills as well as learn new ones. Do you have an idea of something you would absolutely want to do in the Student Union? We are more than willing to hear you out!

As a Helga Volunteer, it is also possible to collect credits. The number of credits is determined by the number of hours you spend volunteering. 1 credit requires 27 hours. If you have any questions about the volunteer committee, you can send your questions via email to

How do you get to join in?

Anyone Helga’s member who is interested in integrating into student union activities, wants to gain experience in volunteering or increase their own community spirit at the university can apply to volunteer.
