Following a successful kickoff chat, the contributor working group is organizing its next chat on April 20th to continue its work.
To make accommodations for as many timezones as possible, we will be holding these chats in multiple timezones (please note that we are shifting the times a bit to make these meetings friendlier for folks from APAC and AMER)
The chat will be held on the #community-team channel of the Make/WordPress Slack. Here’s the link to a handy `.ics` file which contains calendar entries for our upcoming chat, so that you won’t miss it. These chats have also been added to the Make/Meetings calendar. Everyone who is interested in building a mentorship program is welcome to attend these chats.
Looping in folks that had originally expressed interest in joining the program: @williamsba1, @megabyterose, @wolfpaw, @soulseekah, @courtneypk, @amethystanswers @javiercasares @leogopal @milana_cap @unintended8 @lesleysim @@itsjustdj @evarlese @@prathameshp @javiercasares, and @desrosj.

1. Welcome, introductions, and check-ins
How is everyone doing? New members joining the group can also introduce themselves.
2. Discussing a Minimum Viable Product "A minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development." - WikiPedia (MVP "A minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development." - WikiPedia) of the Proposed Mentorship Program
Last week, we briefly brainstormed on a structure for our projectwide mentorship program. This week, we go the next step to try and build an MVP for the Mentorship Program for our project. The idea is to share all the learnings we picked up last week, and use it to shape an experimental mentorship program to test out our idea so that we can iterate and build our learnings.
3. Next steps and next meeting
Depending on the outcome of the discussion, we will decide on the next steps of our meeting. We will aim to kick off some basic ideas in order to create a draft MVP which we can post in the Make/Community blog. We will also try to identify a regular cadence for our chats (that is friendlier for multiple timezones).
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
