Mozilla Open Source Student Clubs [Formerly - Mozilla Campus Clubs]
Mozilla is creating an Open Source Student Club program dedicated to creating and supporting a network of clubs on university and colleges around the world who are learning about and contributing to open source projects and open web technologies.
There are currently more than 160 active Clubs, primarily in Asia. The program is now being reexamined for a US audience, where based on extensive research, our focus will be on empowering and connecting existing open source clubs by providing training, content and connection opportunities.
You can find a live version of the site at campus.mozilla.community
A new version of the website is currently under production, slated to launch late Summer, 2017.
Objective & Alignment with Mozilla's Mission:
Our mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An Internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent.
We believe that students are uniquely positioned to make a difference in the world and that by bringing together and supporting local groups who care about the open internet we can achieve great things.
A healthy, self-sustaining network of Clubs worldwide (relatively evenly distributed), actively contributing to Mozilla’s mission and the open web.
