Currently, there are over 500 trained Gotcha Covered volunteers at UC!
The Gotcha Covered condom distribution program is designed to increase condom distribution on and around campus for UC students. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), condom distribution programs are effective at increasing condom use, increasing condom carrying, promoting delayed sexual involvement, and reducing incidence of STIs.
Currently, students can get free condoms from the Student Wellness Center during business hours. This program allows UC students to become a certified Gotcha Covered volunteer by attending a 1-hour sexual health education workshop. Once certified, students will be given a supply of condoms to have available for fellow students and residents. By displaying the Gotcha Covered sticker on your door, you're allowing students to pick up condoms, lubricant, and/or information on sexual health.
All Gotcha Covered Trainings are held in 743 Steger Student Life Center.
