What is The Condom Collective?

The Condom Collective, a project of Trojan ® Brand Condoms and Advocates for Youth, is a youth-led grassroots movement to:

 

  1. Make condoms available to every student who needs them.
  2. Educate young folks on the value of condoms as a contraceptive method, and especially the importance of choosing the right condom for them.
  3. Ensure access to contraceptives is a right for all.

 

Every semester, we select 1,000 students to turn their campuses into SafeSites that give free, high-quality condoms to those who need them. Condom Collective members are college students in all 50 states who give out 1,000,000 Trojan Brand condoms on their campuses a year. Many also receive further training in sexual health, organize to increase access to contraceptives, and launch campaigns for systemic change on-campus.  Our collective takes action to give young people access to free, high-quality condoms, promote sexual health, advocate for condoms to be widely available, and make their communities a better place.  

If you care about access to quality condoms on your campus, and want to prevent the spread of STIs and unplanned pregnancies on your campus, apply to join the Condom Collective below!


The program is for college students in the United States between the ages of 18 and 29. If you are a college/university staff member who is interested in purchasing discounted condoms, please visit trojanprofessional.com.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic keeping more college students at home, the Condom Collective program will be limited only to college students who are on-campus.  Therefore, we will only be selecting 200 students to participate, instead of the normal 1,000.  Applications should go live by August 13th, 2020.

Have questions? Please email Geoff Corey, Senior Manager of Digital Campaign Strategy, at geoff@advocatesforyouth.org.

Giving out free condoms is the first step on the road to a world where contraceptives are a right for all.  Some participants organize for their school to have free condom dispensers because they know that once they’ve handed out their 500 free condoms, people at their school will still need condoms. Want to learn how to take action so your school can put up free condom dispensers?  Check out our Resources section for activist toolkits that will walk you through organizing to get free condom dispensers on your campus, and for more information about activism for free contraceptives contact kinjo@advocatesforyouth.org.

Activist Highlight

What if your campus community did not have to rely on just the 500 condoms you hand out this semester and free condoms were just available for students at all times? Check out this Q & A with a former participant who was able to get her school to put up free condom dispensers.

Writing an Op Ed or Letter to the Editor

Getting published in your school or local paper in support of free condoms on campus is a great way to get your message out. Here’s a step by step guide to writing and pitching an op ed or letter to the editor.

Host a Teach-In

A teach-in is a great way to combine education and action: gather your friends and classmates to host an event where you give out condoms, have an informal conversation about why your school should make condoms free, and have attendees sign a petition to make condoms free at your school. Click below for instructions on how to plan and host one.

Petition Drive and Delivery

Learn how to collect and deliver petition signatures effectively so you can convince your school to put up free condom dispensers. Click here for a toolkit on gathering petition signatures and delivering them to your university administration.

Student Government Resolution

Gaining support of your student government is one tactic to get your school to put up free condom dispensers. Here’s a step-by-step guide to lobbying your student government.
