Community Team Update, 1/30

Jen posted a big post on Mentorship Programs earlier this week. The plan with internal mentorship programs is to pilot both one-on-one and small group mentorships for new contributors to different teams within the project. Cool!

It’s also time to plan for external programs for this summer: the GSoC application is coming up in mid-February, and Jen’s looking for a volunteer to help manage the program: add a comment to the mentorship post if you’re interested in helping out. We’re still undecided on whether to participate in the Gnome Outreach Program for Women again — we’ll be gathering feedback as well as looking for fundraising sources.

In WordCamp news: This is the last week to nominate your city for the next WordCamp Europe or join the team.
