Application period for the chairperson and secretary of JYY`s Subcommittees is open now!

JYY’s subcommittees focus on the development of the activities of various areas in our student union, such as supporting organizations, organizing events, influencing education and social policy, increasing well-being and developing our community.

The committees are open to all JYY`s members and you can get involved at any time of the year. The chairs and secretaries of the committees work closely with subject organizations, JYY’s experts and JYY’s Board of Directors. Anyone who is interested can get involved and come up with ideas!
