Content leader[edit]

The content leader's role is to watch the newsroom, help edit and review posts added by other community members, write posts, encourage program leaders to write about their experiences, and collect Wikipedia in education news from the media. This volunteer leader will make sure the newsletter content is ready two weeks before the publication date. This may require volunteering for 3-5 hours every month and the volunteer should have good writing skills.

Publication leader[edit]

The publication leader is responsible for creating the pages for every new issue of the newsletter. This volunteer will move the content prepared by the community to the new issue pages and make sure it is in the right formatting before publication. This may require volunteering 1 day every three months. The publication leader will start their work every time after getting a notification from the content leader that the content is ready to make sure the newsletter is published in time. This volunteer should have good experience with editing Wikimedia projects.

Distribution leader[edit]

The distribution leader is responsible for delivering the published new issue of the newsletter to subscribers on talk pages, email addresses, mailing lists and social media. This may require volunteering 1 day every three months. The distribution leader will start their work after getting a notification from the Publication leader that the newsletter is published. This volunteer should have good experience with editing Wikimedia projects.
