If you learned something new implementing a Wikimedia program or running an activity, capture this on a learning pattern and share it with the movement. Alternatively, if you are about to start a new project or activity, find advice, tools and ideas on how to troubleshoot through some of the most common problems.

If you are a program or project leader, and struggle to get your story across in reporting, this is your chance to learn a few tricks and resources to build a narrative. Through some key strategies you can improve the way you share about your efforts, the impact of the work in advancing the movement, and how others might benefit from your experience.

Surveys help you take the pulse of your local community and evaluate different ways in which your programmatic activities are having an impact in your local community. Find resources and direct support to create your own survey, as well as tools that can help you run your program.
