Apply to join the Wappu Committee!

As you know, vappu (May Day) is the best time of the year for students and it never ends. That’s why…

JYY is putting together the first ever Wappu Committee, open to all JYY members! The committee is responsible for the Amazing Race Jyväskylä (ARJ) urban adventure competition, the Lakitus AfterParty picnic party, the ldbtqa+ community party Ilokivi Queer Night – Wappu Edition and the Vappukuulutus! party on vappu 2024. In addition, JYY and the Wappu Committee will have access to the Ilokivi Venue for a week to come up with ideas and organize a Wappu programme.

Each event will have its own team of students who will be responsible for communication, marketing, graphic design and practical organisation. The organising team will be responsible only for their own event and will not be expected to be involved in the organisation of every event. We are looking for 5-8 organisers per event. The working language can be Finnish and/or English. The Wappu Committee will meet once a month from January onwards and more often closer to vappu. The organising groups will meet on cycles that they agree themselves.

The groups are supported by the JYY Events Manager, the JYY Board’s Cultural and Events Board Member and the Wappu Committee’s chairperson.


The application for the Wappu Committee is open till 31st of January. The application closes on Wednesday 31.1. at 18:00. Selected candidates will be notified by email by 18:00 on Thursday 1.2.
