Start your semester with Restart

This year, the Restart event kicking off the autumn is bigger than ever! It is now aimed at everyone volunteering with us, which means that we will be able to get some inspiration and motivation together with all active members of organisations and committees as well as our student representatives in administration.

Restart, organised now for the third time, will help you get inspired for the autumn and ease yourself back gently after the summer holiday. The event features thought-provoking speeches, allows you to concentrate on motivation and coping, teaches you new practical skills and lets you discuss the benefits that volunteer activities offer for working life. And the best part of it is that everything takes place in the company of numerous other volunteer actors!

Restart is held  at the Maria01 event space (at Lapinlahdenkatu 16) on 9 September.

Sign up and read more about the workshops at https://www.lyyti.in/restart2019. Sign-ups close on 9 September.
