The Ubuntu Youth Team is in place to welcome new, youthful people to the Ubuntu community. We teach them the basics of using IRC, the Wiki, Launchpad and answer any questions they might have to resolve issues they have with Ubuntu. Once they are happy with their knowledge of Ubuntu they will then, hopefully, start helping other newcomers out. It's a cycle which connects young people and helps them to learn, socialise and teach.

Welcome to the Ubuntu Youth project! We are a team of youths who want to use Ubuntu and continue using it. We prove you dont need to be super nerdy to run Linux/ Ubuntu, It just takes dedication!

Ubuntu Team Wiki - This wiki is now used for organizational work, proposals and all materials not belonging to main wiki.
System Documentation - This is the documentation that comes with Ubuntu, information on it can be found at the link. It's no more involved than doing work on the wiki, don't let the name scare you.
Help.Ubuntu/Community - The main community wiki for help documents for Ubuntu. Please see New Users section for a list of resources and steps to getting started.
