Wikipedia Education Collaborative membership request declined edit

Dear User:Rberchie,

Thanks for your interest in Wikipedia Education Collaborative. We reviewed your request and found that it does not meet the membership criteria. We cannot accept your request because according to the membership criteria, all Collab members must be currently leaders of a Wikipedia Education Program with proven experience. You may find it helpful to reach out to the Education Collaborative members. They give close mentorship to program initiators who need help with planning their programs. Please feel free to contact any Collab member on this list.

Please check out our Education Portal for general information about the Wikipedia Education Program. The Education Toolkit is also a helpful guide to assist you in starting an education program in your country or university. If you need help with anything please feel free to reach out to me or to any of the Collab members.

We encourage you to reapply to join the Collaborative at any time you feel that you meet the membership criteria in the future.

Volunteering on the Education Program newsletter edit

Hi Raphael, we are preparing to begin the process of publishing the Education Program Newsletter, now with a new format and monthly issues. I see that you have been involved as a distribution leader in the past. Are you still interested in participating in this capacity? Would love to speak with you more about what you've done in the past, and what you're interested in working on in the future!

All the best --NSaad (WMF)

Hi NSaad (WMF) I am still interested and will like to work on the Team.

Hi Rberchie That's great! I'll be in touch soon. --NSaad (WMF) (talk) 22:16, 1 February 2017 (UTC)Reply
Hi Rberchie, we'll publish the Feb Newsletter on the 28th. I have also contacted Saileshpat who is also volunteering as a distribution leader. In case you are interested in other roles besides distribution, we could also use help with copy editing. Let me know if you would be interested! Otherwise, I'll send you the copy for distribution on the 28th. Cheers! --NSaad (WMF) (talk) 18:33, 24 February 2017 (UTC)Reply
The newsletter is live! Would be appreciative if you can push it out on social media, that would be great. I'll go ahead and post it on the Wikipedia Education Program Facebook page, but it would be great if you could share it on other channels.
