Welcome to the Mozilla Reps program wiki. Reps are passionate Mozillians who mobilize and develop functional and local/regional communities. They are committed to empowering others to contribute to Mozilla projects.



Overview

Reps are passionate Mozillians who mobilize and develop functional and local/regional Mozilla communities. They are committed to educate and empower people to support Mozilla’s mission and contribute to the project based on Mozilla’s leadership agreements 2.

Reps are community coordinators interested in:

  • finding and connecting new talent with Mozilla projects they are contributing to
  • developing communities on a functional or local level
  • supporting local communities and Mozilla to have an effective and decentralized environment for contribution
  • creating collaborations with adjacent communities to spread Mozilla’s mission and expand Mozilla’s outreach in the open source ecosystem
  • collecting local knowledge from Mozilla communities to inform and inspire Mozilla’s strategy, activities and priorities

Reps are not a power structure over other Mozillians; instead, they are here to help, empower and inspire people to contribute to Mozilla projects.

The Reps Program is open to everyone above 18 years of age who have been contributing to Mozilla for at least 6 months. Following are the benefits of joining the Reps Program:

  • Access to a global community which includes people from many different countries and cultural backgrounds
  • Direct support from Mozilla to help you empower others in your region to advance Mozilla’s goals
  • Opportunity to help your local community grow
  • Grow your leadership and communication skills and build networks with new people from many different countries around the globe
  • Amplify Mozilla’s impact in your local region and functional area.

An open and community-driven program

The Mozilla Reps program is open to anyone who is:

  • passionate about the Mozilla Project
  • knowledgeable of the Mozilla organization, its mission, its products and its community
  • willing to communicate to as many people as possible and keen to inspire people to contribute to Mozilla

Although anyone can sign-up to become a Mozilla Rep, that doesn't mean you automatically become a Mozilla Rep after submitting your application. Because Mozilla Reps are entrusted with new responsibilities and special tools to speak on Mozilla's behalf, to manage budgets, events and swag, each application is carefully reviewed by the Reps Onboarding Team and each applicant, if shortlisted, must pass a short interview before officially becoming a Mozilla Rep.

Anyone applying to become a Mozilla Rep goes through three easy steps before officially becoming a Rep. Learn more about the application process.
