Not a goodbye

Dear judges, 

Judge Academy’s official launch day is tomorrow and our terms as Program Coordinators will come to an end. We’d like to thank the community for the opportunity to serve you during these past months and years. It has been rewarding but also challenging, particularly during the past eight months. 

We’d also like to thank the many judges who have served as Regional Coordinators, Sphere Leaders and in other program leadership positions, with or without an official title. We’d like to thank the countless judges who have contributed their time to various projects over the years. We’d like to thank every judge who took the time to help their colleagues learn or improve. And finally, we’d like to thank those who fought to make the community safer for everyone. 

We are proud to be part of this culture and we look forward to seeing it continue growing under Judge Academy. 

Of course, not everyone will be able to join Judge Academy tomorrow. Those judges will be in good hands with Adrian Estoup and the Legacy Judge Program, and we hope they will be able to join Judge Academy very soon. 

While we are taking off our Program Coordinator hats, we are not saying goodbye. We will still be involved in events and projects, and we want to continue to help Judges grow at both the program and individual level. See you soon! 


Alfonso, Bryan, Johanna and Riccardo
