Call for volunteers - This Month In Education[edit]

By Samir Elsharbaty (WMF)

Snippet: This Month in Education is inviting the Wikipedia and the education communities to participate in the newsletter publication.

This Month in Education is inviting the community to help the newsletter get published every three months. In order to do this, we need the help of three community members. Each one of them will volunteer 1-2 days every three months working on the newsletter. We will be sure to provide the needed training, support and recognition for the new volunteers. Please read the description of every task below to find the most suitable role for you.

Content leader

The content leader will 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. The new volunteer 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

The publication leader will be 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

The distribution leader will be 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.

Please help the education newsletter by sharing this call for volunteers to anyone who might be interested in volunteering for the newsletter.
