We recently encouraged people to volunteer at Mozilla as part of the 15th anniversary promotions and this drove a big jump in activity with a spike of over 1,700 people expressing interest in getting involved on one day.
Our mission really resonates and it is clear there is a connection between us talking about being a participatory community and people wanting to participate.
After the spike in activity leveled off, I was looking at the stats at arewegrowingyet.com and noticed some interesting things. One was that the mix of functional areas people were interested in changed.
Coding had been the most popular area of interest before the promotions, but interest in our education initiatives jumped to become the most popular. Interest in coding increased too, but by a smaller percent.
We had also recently started localizing the Get Involved page and this was clear in the stats too. There were jumps in activity across all locales (the chart for the Spanish version of the page is below).
I find it really encouraging that there is so much interest in getting involved across all of the things we do—including establish opportunities and new ones—and from all around the world. Exciting times
