When you see people around you, have enough potential to lead a project or be a mentor to someone . Its your duty to guide them to a proper channel so that they follows the same. Recently I became Mozilla Rep , went to the same place where I organized my first Mozilla event.
In this event we focused on guiding new members to a proper channel and passing the roles and responsibilities to Active members . Event started with a general introduction of Open Source and how Mozilla is related to it. Ways to contribute in Mozilla. And other areas of contribution. In this process we have filtered the participants and get to know they all are technically sound and have come to this event to learn something new .
So we split the participants into two group where we had a small session of WebExtension and they developed their first add-on. Everyone was Excited!!! to see their work in front of their eyes.
After the event we had a group picture.

We then proceeds towards discussing new plans for the community and how to track them .
- 10 Events in 10 Different Colleges of Rajasthan. Introduction of Mozilla and establishment of a Mozilla Club in their college, so that we can have a channel to be in touch with them and guide them on a regular basis.
- 3 Hackathons based on Rust, WebVR and Firefox in general which will include other development sessions such as WebExtensions,QA and l10n.
- MozCoffee Event with the Club lead of all the Colleges and few active contributors in my community to guide them to be a mentor not a leader.
