Its that time of year again! Applications are currently open to make your campus a Great American Condom Campaign Safe Site. Never heard of the program? According to their website:
“The Great American Condom Campaign is a youth-led grassroots movement to make the U.S. a sexually healthy nation. Each year, GACC members give out 1,000,000 Trojan Brand condoms on college campuses across the United States, educate their peers about sexual health, and organize to improve the policies that affect young people’s health and lives.”
I’ve been participating in this program for the last year, (you can reapply for condoms twice a year) and the condoms you receive are wonderful and incredibly popular with students around the campus. You get a variety of 500 Trojan condoms to distribute as you see fit. Last year, the large majority of our condoms were given away through a campus-wide dorm storm that put a bag of condoms, information, stickers, and lube on every dorm room door on campus. It was a huge success, and I definitely encourage everyone to try a similar event on their campus!
Want to apply? You must be a college student between the ages of 18 and 29 to apply. Applications will close on September 1, 2012. All successful Fall Semester 2012 SafeSite applicants will be notified by October 1, 2012.
