Give It a Go!

Give it a Go runs all year round and is your fast-track into all the activities student life offers you at York. It’s the perfect way to try something out without having to commit, as all of our events have the GIAG Guarantee: no experience or membership necessary! Check out all of this terms events below!

Give it a Go Week

Give it a Go runs all through the year, but in Week Two of Spring and Summer Term we focus on Give it a Go Week. Keep an eye out for our booklets detailing everything going on, and be sure to spend an hour or two trying out something new!

Join the Give it a Go Activators!

Our Activators are the amazing volunteer team behind Give it a Go. They attend sessions to help newbies feel welcome; hand out booklets before every Give it a Go Week; put forward new session ideas and marketing strategies; attend and run off-campus trips for free, and much more - and receive amazing rewards for doing so! If you’d like to become an Activator, drop an email to [email protected] to express your interest.

“Becoming a Give it a Go Activator has been one of the highlights of my time at York! I get to try out more GIAG sessions (and therefore more activities) on campus than I ever would have done otherwise and I love it! It’s a pleasure to help student groups grow and to help others find activities they’re passionate about.”
