Those who want to create new club in their college, what was they do first ?
They can apply to start a club in their Campus by filling the registration form. The Club Captain has to fill the application form and It is highly advise to have three executives who will help him/her to initialize/sustain the Club, identify the Club's focus areas and help plan the future activities.
I filled the registration form, what's next?
Thank you for applying! We have received your application and we invite you to go through the two following necessary steps in order to get your Club active and officially recognized:
1. Enroll and complete the Orientation for Campus Club Leaders
2. Follow the prompt to complete and submit your Year Plan
As soon as you submit a year plan you will be matched with a Regional Coordinator (RC) who will review your year plan and guide you through the process of setting up an awesome club!
Please take note that it may take a few weeks to be matched with a Regional Coordinator.
What can I do until I have been matched with a Regional Coordinator?
Your Regional Coordinator will help you establish an awesome club by providing you guidance, support and help you set your Club's goals for the rest of the year.
In the Resources page in the website you can find all the relevant information on how to setup and successfully run your club.
Going through the available Resources will help you have a faster, meaningful, productive and more fun on-boarding process with your future Regional Coordinator.
When is my Club officially recognized as Mozilla Campus Club?
Each Club Captain will be matched with a Regional Coordinator who will guide you through, about how to start and awesome club. Part of this process is going through the orientation course and creating a Year Plan which will reflect the Club's goals and activities for the rest of the academic year.
In order for a Club to be recognized as an official Mozilla Campus Club, in addition to the Club Captains meeting requirements for activity listed in the role description document and the requirements listed above, a Club must demonstrate three months of regular activity - by submitting reports, and meeting with their Regional Coordinator on a regular basis.
What type of activities a Club should carry?
You can run any of the activities listed in the relevant page on the website. Each activity is designed and tailored to our program's goal which is to help students get more skills in an effort of contributing to open source projects. If you have an idea for an activity which will advance our mission you can propose it here.
Where can I request swag or budget for an event?
The primary focus of the program is to help students get more skills in an effort of contributing to Open Source projects. It is not an Ambassador program where swag and budget are keys to the program's success. Instead we offer training and activities which will help students get more skills and work on cutting edge technologies.
Budget and swag are not available through the Mozilla Campus Clubs program yet since we are still exploring how Clubs can use them as a tool for advancing our mission in an effort of contributing back to Open Source projects.
Can we have multiple clubs per campus?
You can have only one Mozilla Campus Club per Campus. Having more than on Mozilla Campus Clubs in the same campus will lead to competition for members and resources.
Some groups would rather exist only virtually, is this possible?
Part of the definition of a club is that they meet regularly in person, while some activities will definitely be virtual, in order to be recognized as a Mozilla Club they need to be primarily based in the real world.
What is the difference between Mozilla Clubs and Campus Clubs?
Mozilla Campus Clubs are Mozilla Clubs that take place at Colleges and Universities. These Clubs take advantage of the unique learning environments of Universities and Colleges to bring groups of students together to teach, build and protect the open web. Other Mozilla Clubs are open to any audience and you can learn more about them at learning.mozilla.com/clubs.
What will happen to the Mozilla Clubs who operate on University & College?
Mozilla Clubs who are established on Campus will be invited to join the new Campus program.
What is the plan for the Firefox Student Ambassadors (FSAs)?
FSA leadership (RALs - eboard) have already assembled a group of highly invested people - the Campus Advisory Commitee - who are working on building the new campus program. RALs will be invited to apply for the Regional Coordinator role and all the Firefox Club leads and members to apply for starting a Campus Club.
Who can apply to be a Regional Coordinator?
For the initial launch of the program FSA Regional Ambassadors leads and local coaches from the TBTW campaign will be invited to apply for the Regional Coordinator role.
What is the relation between the Campus Advisory Committee (CAC) and Regional Coordinators?
CAC members will support Regional Coordinators of their region on transitioning old Firefox Clubs to Campus Clubs, on-boarding new Clubs and support them.
