From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Some ideas to discuss in the Volunteer supporters group:

  • What is a volunteer? Can we compare volunteers in different regions/chapters?
  • What do volunteers do? If you were to list a volunteer position the same way as a job position, how would you describe it?
  • Why do people volunteer to Wikimedia/Wikipedia?
  • As volunteer supporters, what is our responsibility to the volunteers?
  • What are volunteers taking from their experience in Wikimedia? What should they take away?
  • How do you coordinate your volunteers? How do they react?
  • How do you "recruit" new volunteers? How do you keep them active?
