### Community Badging

32
[Community Badging](https://opensource.ieee.org/community-advisory-group/community-badging/about/-/blob/main/README.md) participants talk about the many uses for badges. We find them to be key to several project goals, including the recognition of volunteer contributions, promotion of effective volunteers to new responsibilities, and the progress of a project to greater maturity.

### Documentation and Curation

[Documentation and Curation](https://opensource.ieee.org/community-advisory-group/documentation-curation/about/-/blob/main/README.md) recommends documents to be created for the IEEE SA OPEN Community, and outlines the process for creating, reviewing and updating those documents, as well as recommended practices for other documentation on the platform and for any open source project.

### Education

The [Education](https://opensource.ieee.org/community-advisory-group/education) subgroup discusses how schools, colleges, universities, and training centers can use IEEE SA OPEN, and actively strives to create a welcoming and easy-to-use platform supporting students, educators and researchers.

46
### Open Community Development Models
47

48
Our [Open Community Development Models](https://opensource.ieee.org/community-advisory-group/open-comm-dev-models/about/-/blob/main/README.md) subgroup helps users make decisions about which open source archetype(s) best suit their needs when creating or joining an open source software development project. We plan to produce documentation to explain various approaches to open source project management.
49

50
The Community AG and many of its subgroups support the creation of [Community Documentation and Templates](https://opensource.ieee.org/documentation-and-templates).  These are available to all of the IEEE SA OPEN community for use.
