Program Capacity and Learning/Team

Program Capacity and Learning

We need your feedback. Share your thoughts by 19 February 2016!

Program Capacity and Learning was an integrated team in the Community Engagement department at the WMF. This team combined staff from The Wikipedia Library, the Wikipedia Education Program, and Learning and Evaluation teams. Even though the team has split into two different teams: Learning and Evaluation, and Programs, the mission, scope, and new projects remain the same for both teams, and you can read more about them on this page.

Program Capacity and Learning: Our mission


Community leaders are vital members of the Wikimedia movement because they spark engagement through Wikimedia programs, bringing content to Wikimedia projects. Through programs, community leaders also build bridges to new opportunities and overcome challenges. Our team empowers community leaders to understand, run, and grow Wikimedia programs.

Broadly, the team's scope is in the following areas:

  • We focus on community leadership development and building program capacity.
  • We provide tools and infrastructure to support program growth and knowledge sharing.
  • We help programs make the transition from experimental practice to systematized success.
  • We support the development of Wikimedia affiliates and connect them with movement partners.
