Updates for the group

Currently we are shifting to creating Learn WordPress videos for parents, organizers, guardians, and educators. We have a list of videos we want to create and are looking for volunteers that can help us create them. We currently have 3 videos on the list.

Goals for the Year

We are looking to grow the team! @kimberly.lipari@camikaos (she/her) and I are looking to grow the team. If you have any interest in helping the next generation (you don’t have to be hanging out with them, just creating content for parents) reach out to us and let us know what strikes your fancy. We need:

  • Research – laws surrounding minors at events globally
  • Writing – arts and crafts documentation, WordPress basics documentation, Parental Resources Documents
  • Video Creation – how to videos for Parents to get involved with their kids, Encouraging Videos for organizers, and videos for educators
  • Editing – grammar, spell check, and general flow proofreaders/editors

Needs for the group

Ultimately, our biggest group need is to get more volunteers that want to help with the work. Once onboard we can discuss other group needs.

Open Floor Discussion

I know there are others who may not have been able to join today and that is okay. You can leave your comments in threads and I will add them to the P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at https://make.wordpress.org/. recap post tomorrow afternoon.

With that I will wrap up the meeting. Thank you so much for being here and for all your time! This next year is going to make it so much better for adults that want to help youth grow their knowledge!
