Are You OK?

Do you love OUSA events and want to help other people love them too? Are you non-judgemental and does it take a lot to shock you? Do you love helping others and having great yarns? Then you’d be a perfect fit to volunteer for Are You OK! We are looking for people to join the Are You OK? safety team and provide a safety net for students at OUSA events. Full training is provided and you get to experience the events in a unique way. 

What is Are You OK? 

Are You OK? is the OUSA Student Support safety team, here to make sure that a good time doesn’t turn into a bad time and support is always there when it is needed. The Are You OK? safety team provides students with a non-judgmental, approachable, and friendly source of support.  

At all OUSA events, you will find our fantastic Are You OK? team in their bright pink T-shirts.  Whether someone has had too much to drink, is feeling homesick, in need of first aid, needs some chill out time, or a safe ride home the trained Are You OK? volunteers are there to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience. 

What’s in it for you?
