Wikimedia volunteers can help educational projects by meeting with teaching staff, librarians or support staff to raise awareness, using the many resources for educators already created. With notice, we can provide supporting materials and may be able to support with funding for travel and subsistence in accordance with Wikimedia UK's Expenses Policy.

If you're interested in getting involved in education activities, get in touch with us or sign your name on the Education Portal People Page. If you want to be more heavily involved in the strategy, and board/operations side of things, you could join the Education Committee.
