Applying to become a GISCorps volunteer can only be done on line, via our link: Sign Up To Volunteer. Once you have accepted our Code of Conduct and our General Policies and you have completed the skills form, you should receive an automated confirmation email. We do not vet volunteers upon sign up, anyone with GIS skills can join. You will then start receiving our quarterly newsletter, periodic announcements, and if and when your skills match a recruitment, you will get an email notification about the project.
GISCorps doesnot guarantee an assignment to everyone that applies to become a GISCorps volunteer. As new projects become available, our role is to supply the best qualified candidates for the task at hand. If your qualifications match the skills needed and you are interestedand available for the duration of the project, you may apply as a candidate. We then interview applicants and pass the top candidates to the requesting agency. Some postings are very competitive. Once a volunteer is ultimately paired with the partner agency, GISCorps responsibilities are minimal, and volunteers will be in direct communication with the host agency. For rights, privileges, and privacy issues refer to our General Policies.
