Students around the world learn valuable skills, and build up experience, by contributing to free and open source software projects like LibreOffice. Necdet Yücel helps to mentor students on their journeys:

@libreoffice Really inspiring story!
Unfortunately in my high school years when learning about office suits, our teacher just shrugged and said, "our school gets Microsoft software almost for free, so, in effect, we are their employees here".
Glad I came around LibreOffice 15-odd years later. Better late than never! #openoffice #opensource
