Updates from the month

@sunsand187 has been working through WCMIA, WCORL and WCJAX to make sure everything is good to go for those events. As well as processing new camp requests and swag orders.

Goals for next month

@sunsand187 will be working with the team on creating a webinar type call that will allow us to train individuals that want to learn how to be part of this working group, hold a youth event, or start a youth based meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. in their area. I am going to open discussion on the logistics of this during the open floor in a bit.

It was also mentioned:

We are still in need of individuals who love to write, research and edit. If this is you let us know. You do not have to work directly with youth to help further the mission at hand.

Feel free to comment below any additional information you would like to add.

Open Discussion

The first thing I wanted to bring up was the “webinar”/“meeting” not sure what to call it yet. The idea is to have a video call that can be an opportunity for anyone wanting to learn what this corner of the project is about. It can be for people wanting to hold youth events or people wanting to help us research and document. Really it is for anyone even remotely curious.

The goal would be to have this sometime in the first 2 weeks of April.
