Humanitarian OSM Team/Internships
The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) strives to participate in various internship programs in order to open up the community greater and provide guidance for the first steps into the world of disaster mapping, open source and open data. So far HOT has been involved with Outreachy and hopes to participate in the Google Summer of Code (GSOC) in the future. Please see details of the different Outreachy rounds below:
Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved. We provide a supportive community for beginning to contribute any time throughout the year and offer focused internship opportunities twice a year with a number of free software organizations.
The current round of internships is open internationally to women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people. Additionally, it's open to residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander. We are planning to expand the program to more participants from underrepresented backgrounds in the future.
