Learn more about all the HOT Global Community: 

HOT has many diverse community roles and ways to contribute to our mission.
In a Community Sprint <https://hackpad.com/HOT-Community-Sprint-PT9LYvG5aDn>
, we designed the following types. The working groups aim to be inclusive of
all community contributors: 

.        Connectors/Teachers 

o   Training and mentorship program to cross-train new leaders with the goal
to have more leaders and less burnout

o   This role includes storytellers and communicators. 

o   Outreach to share the OSM educational web site LearnOSM
(www.learnosm.org) and to show the community how to get involved in HOT

o   Clean up general communication on the wiki and web sites to provide a
clear path for those who want to get involved

o   Develop target communities for outreach

.        Mappers 

o   Participate in, and help coordinate,  mapping activities.

o   Reach  out to friends of OSM who might help with surge support in
various  areas (e.g. Mozilla, hubs, etc., as well as links with
connectors/teachers regarding leaders).

o   Maintain a wider OSM outreach plan (coordinated with respect) to get
active mappers more involved with HOT. 

o   Identify new communities for outreach.

.        Partners/Mission Supporters 

o   Develop  a policy and guidance on how to establish mutual  communication
with  partners, a W3 ( who does what when)there are some  items in
membership  code of conduct.

o   This group includes researchers and liaisons.

.        Techies
