TECNOCAMPUS VOLUNTEERS

TecnoCampus is committed to enabling volunteers to cooperate with all the organizations it works with,  giving altruistic students the opportunity to grow as a person through the different programs organized to help various communities. 

Recognition is given for participating in volunteering activities in the form of credits.  You can earn each credit (up to a maximum of 2 per academic year) for dedicating 25 hours to one or more volunteering programs.  The time dedicated can be rounded off with two free training courses.

* Students on joint honours qualification programs cannot earn University Activity Recognition Credits because their programs do not include elective courses.

TRAINING

This is a program run within the framework of TecnoCampus’s health campus activities.  It aims to educate undergraduates on drug prevention and sexuality issues so that they can advocate good practices in these areas among their peers.

What do we do on this program?

Based on teamwork, professional participation and volunteering programs, we do the following activities:

  • Training to become Health Advocates
  • Health promotion activities in the university setting and occasionally at nightlife venues in the county.
  • Training in social intervention dynamics

When?

The program is divided into 3 blocks of 25 hours in total.  Each block consists of a training section and an intervention section, which takes place before the term examination period to prevent it from interfering excessively with students’ academic commitments.

Is there any recognition of my participation?

Of course!  As well as helping people to make good decisions in relation to their health, the program will reward your time and effort with a University Activity Recognition Credit and a certificate of participation from the Catalan Public Health Agency.

Alongside the psychological care and treatment we provide, in order to ensuring that our professional activity is as rigorous as possible and constantly updated, we run activities related to healthcare promotion, training and the dissemination of knowledge.

We currently work with various postgraduate courses, universities and scientific organizations that organize training activities for professionals. From the perspective of health promotion and prevention, we organize complementary activities for psychological treatment with the aim of promoting attitudes that encourage personal and group improvement, such as personal growth working groups, conferences, professional talks on topics of interest etc.
