a remote island ;)

Hi Mozillians!


We're excited to announce the first event in the Grow Program
(formerly known as MozCamp), for Mozillians who want to deeply develop
their leadership and community building skills. The program and events
focus on developing contribution skills for yourself and to share with
others so we can continue to increase the impact of our communities
for the project and in the world.


About Grow Tunisia


The first three-day event, Grow Tunisia, will take place in Tunis from
Friday, September 26, through Sunday, September 28. Participants must
be available to arrive on Thursday, September 25, and should plan to
depart on Monday, September 29.


In order to attend Grow Tunisia, you must be a Mozillian who resides
in Africa, Europe or the Middle East, extending east to Iran and
Turkey, including Israel and Russia. If you do not live in any of
these regions, don't worry! There will be an upcoming Grow event in
your region later this year --- please plan to apply for your regional
Grow event.


Grow Tunisia participants can expect three full days of intense,
instructor-led training as well as challenging hands-on work. The
curriculum will include community building skills such as event
planning, recruitment and project planning. Additionally, participants
will delve into specific contribution areas to sharpen those skills
and think about how to invite others to join.


Once participants leave Grow Tunisia, they will work with a mentor and
a team of fellow participants to grow our community of active
contributors by recruiting at least 5 new active contributors,*
reactivating 10 idle contributors or hosting at least 2 events. (*An
"active" contributor is one who has completed one measurable
contribution for their contribution area.)

spectrum of our key contribution areas. After discussions with the
attendees of a Program Design Session
, we came up with the
following invitation criteria. By applying to attend Grow Tunisia,
