**The Cleveland Documenters team will absolutely be wearing our Halloween costumes. Feel free to wear yours, too!*

This one-hour training will introduce you to the Cleveland Documenters community, starting with a walk-through of, compensation, and our assignment workflow. You’ll also practice core skills relevant to a range of paid assignments.

Upon completion of this community-building workshop you’ll be eligible to apply for paid assignments. We offer other Documenters trainings such as public meetings*, live-tweeting, and other workshops to give you the support and preparation you’ll need. Unless otherwise noted, these trainings are encouraged but not required for the related assignment.

It’s all happening Thursday, October 29th from 5-6pm EST, via videochat––register to receive access details.
