We are still looking for co-mentors in two projects. Their primary
mentors are fully qualified, but they welcome a third point of view, and
some backup. Contact us if you are interested in the success of these
projects. It is a good opportunity for new mentors!
Let me also highlight Sucheta's role as mentor, less than a year after
she was an OPW participant herself. This is how our participation in
outreach programs becomes sustainable in the long run.
The new teams have a couple of weeks for onboarding and planning the
first project iterations. We will also find some time to meet
altogether, and team by team.
OPW participants, thank you for your interest in contributing to Wikimedia!
