Our main event project is [http://campus.openhatch.org/ Open Source Comes to Campus]. If you're affiliated with a college (such as a student, staff/faculty, or alumnus), you can help organize an event. Unaffiliated people can also volunteer to teach at a nearby event, make your open source project easy to contribute to for students, help us find company sponsors, and [https://github.com/openhatch/open-source-comes-to-campus contribute to the curriculum].
