Training and events
OYY holds various events throughout the year for organisations working under it. The annual Organisations Meeting takes place at the beginning of each year. The Organisations Meeting is a training event with training sessions for all types of organisation workers. The persons in charge of the training are experienced organisation workers.
After School Snacks is a free-form networking event for organisation workers where workers from different organisations get to have discussions together led by OYY workers. Food and drinks are served at the event, and organisations may prepare their own discussion topics.
OYY offers annual financial aid for organisations working under it. The total amount of the approved financial aid is determined by the Student Union’s Council of Representatives, and the financial aid is granted by the Board of the Student Union. Also, the Board approves of the financial aid criteria for each year, based on which the aid is granted. Previously, financial aid has been granted for, e.g., communal activities, and the organising of events and feedback days.
