PARTICIPATE
Learn something new. Contribute what you know.
Wikimedia projects are made by volunteers. Like you.
 
Editors contribute new articles and improve current articles. Developers write and debug the code that makes the wikis go. Galleries, libraries, archives, and museums share their collections and expertise. All of us have knowledge to share. Here’s how to join our global community.
01
Get involved as a Wikipedia editor
No previous experience is needed to start editing Wikipedia. Visit the Teahouse for a friendly place to learn about editing. Veteran editors answer questions and help new editors become accustomed to Wikipedia culture.
02
Join or plan an edit-a-thon
Edit-a-thons bring people with similar interests together to create and improve Wikipedia articles around a common theme. These editing workshops include training for new editors.
03
Find your local Wikimedia community
There are over 100 active Wikimedia affiliates around the world. Each supports Wikimedia projects within a geographical region or thematic area. Find yours.
04
Contribute your coding skills
Our global technical community welcomes volunteer developers of all levels. We host hundreds of software projects in many different domains. It’s easy to get involved.
Galleries, libraries, archives and museums

Elevating Wikimedia: a Universal Code of Conduct for free knowledge
Wikipedia began 20 years ago with a radical premise: to build a free encyclopedia to which anyone could contribute.
