The Volunteer Supporters Network (VSN) is a working group of individuals from Wikimedia organizations dealing with volunteer/community support.

The project of an open global volunteer supporters network got going at Wikimania 2014 in London. Since then, we exchange our expertise and experiences as well as collaborate on common issues and tasks on a regular basis by

  • Establishing and maintaining communication channels for volunteer supporters from Wikimedia organisations
  • Holding meetings/workshops in the context of international Wikimedia events and beyond
  • Creating and sharing resources for volunteer support.

The long-term impact we want to achieve is to improve the working conditions for volunteers in Wikimedia projects (online and offline), to increase diversity and to enhance the spirit of global cooperation and innovation.
