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, an automated email message will be sent to you with a private login/password that you can use to update or delete your record. You will then start receiving our quarterly newsletter, periodic announcements, and recruitment notices.
GISCorps does not guarantee an assignment to everyone that applies to become a GISCorps volunteer. As new projects become available, our task is to supply the best qualified candidates for the task at hand. If your qualifications match the skills needed, you will receive a recruitment email about the project. If you are interested and available, you may apply for the project. For each new project that fits the mission of GISCorps, we interview applicants and pass the top candidates to the requesting agency. Once a volunteer is 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.
