Hi everyone, 


I hope you are doing well, I am writing this email to announce the call for applications for the second cohort of EduWiki Outreach Collaborators. EduWiki Outreach Collaborators or EWOC are a dynamic group of Wikimedians who collaborate with the education team at the Wikimedia Foundation to provide support, effective collaboration, and learning opportunities for the education community in the Wikimedia movement. 

In 2020, we started this pilot initiative to work with community leaders of our movement to support volunteers in the movement with better networking, communication practices for growth, and to work together to spread the awareness on the value of Wikimedia in education. As a result of which we had the opportunity to work with 14 Wikimedia community members from various parts of the world. These volunteers helped in publishing 12 Education newsletters issues, shared many community stories from their regions, and helped in hosting 3 regional education meetings with 54 participants from 20 countries. 

This year we are planning to expand the program and we are planning to work with 20 volunteers in 8 different roles. To have more information regarding this program, please visit our Meta page. The strategic goals are designed by the 2020-2021 cohort of volunteers. 


We encourage volunteers from all regions and genders to be a part of this project! We expect the group of EWOC to represent the diversity of our movement and the call for participation will be open until we achieve this goal. Respecting the privacy of the members, personal information provided will not be shared with an external audience. To apply for this opportunity, please complete this form. To encourage participation and to recognise the works of the collaborators, we have decided on certain rewards for completing different milestones. Find more about EWOC, roles and recognitions here

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, I will be happy to answer them. Looking forward to working closely with you on this project. Feel free to share this in your network.

This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement: https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sign-up_for_Community_Communications_Collaborators_Survey_Privacy_Statement
