Over six weeks, you’ll analyze your community and gain leadership skills like public speaking, technical writing, and software development. At the end of your training, you’ll write a community impact proposal to serve as a guide for activities you've planned and goals you've set for your community. With the skills from your GitHub Campus Experts training, you can build a strong technical community, teach other students, create new opportunities for your student community, and position your institution within a global community of student leaders.
