Are you interested in starting a new group on WILDLABS? Apply to launch one!

We’ve received lots of interest in opening new groups on WILDLABS, so we’re rolling out a formalized process to get them off the ground.

We’re always listening and reacting to the needs of our community, and we hear you loud and clear: you want more groups! That’s why we’re unveiling a new system to launch new groups on WILDLABS. 

If you’re interested in starting a new group, please request a new group training sessions. During these 1-hour sessions, we’ll go over:

  • The community lifecycle
  • Defining goals for a new group
  • How to create an action plan
  • Success metrics
  • Expectations and responsibilities

Reach out to Alex Rood at [email protected] to request a training session. 

Then what happens?

After attending a training session, apply for a new group using this application form. Please do not apply for a new group until you’ve attended a training session! There are questions that will be much easier to answer after attending a session. (If you’ve had a training conversation with us outside of these sessions, please go straight to filling out the form!)

If your new group meets all the requirements, the Community Associate Specialist (that’s me!) will work with you to start your new WILDLABS group, support your action plan, provide resources for thriving, and evaluate success.
