Since last year the GLAM Program have slightly been changed into a Partnership program with a broader scope of partnerships with interest groups and organizations possessing materials and staff which will be provided as a content on Wikipedia. WikiScout is a project on Wikipedia in Macedonian "Shared Knowledge" in cooperation with the Scout Squadron (IPO) "Galeb", which aims to help and improve existing and create new articles about scouting in Macedonian language edited by scouts and active users and editors involved in the project. At the same time, the project's goal is to introduce the scouts into the use and editing of Wikipedia and its accompanying projects such as the Wikimedia Commons for uploading and attaching images and videos and Wikidata, which, in addition to creating articles and scout-related content, the use of Wikipedia by editing content, adding pictures would help them and would continue to be used in their regular scouting activities and duties. On 16th of May the project has started with the firs training workshop at the Scout's Union of Macedonia where around 15 scouts have been introduced to the basics of Wikipedia through a presentation and then they have proceed to creating several articles through the translation tool and visual and coded editor as well as they have uploaded several images. The second part of the project will continue in mid-June where the participants will attend two-day camp with tents on an open air in Macedonia where they will gather information, pictures which will be added as content on Wikipedia.
