Stay tuned for some live interviews with our former EWOC members over
the Education team’s Facebook page.
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.

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.
