PIRATE ry has placed second in academic donating world championship 2023 (heavy weight) by 70 donations. We also earned honorable mention.

We’d like to say thank you to @veripalvelu @veripalvelu_tampere @tarakioffical and for organizing this contest. We also want to say thank you to all the other groups for participating.

Especially we would like to thank every single one who donated blood in the name of PIRATE. We also encourage everyone to donate after this contest because 800 donors is needed everyday in Finland.

PIRATE active members group

Do you want to be a part of our energetic activity? Have you longed for more communal activities in your student life? We have a solution for you! PIRATE ry´s active members group. 

Active members group is a low threshold activity, with no bigger responsibilities. You get to help PIRATE ry´s board in events and orientation weeks for example. We also sometimes just need a few extra pairs of hands.  Being an active member doesn´t mean you have to be available at all times, you can come help us when it best fits your schedule.

But we do expect our active members to be a part of our activities and we reward active members with event tickets and overall patches to give a few examples. Active members group is also a great way to meet new people and make friends. You also get to “peek behind the curtain” of what it´s like to be a part of PIRATE ry´s board. 

Active members group season starts in August 2023 and ends in December 2023. Active members will get an orientation before the season (preferably in May). 

The application period is from 19.4. to 26.4.2023. Interviews will be conducted also during the application period. We will contact you about the selections via email in May.
