The description for your page should be short, informative and maybe you can inject a bit of your personality.
Remember, this might be the first thing people who find it online will learn about your project, so highlight what's most important to you. Here are a few questions that could guide your writing process:
Why is the initiative important to you personally? Maybe go back to your motivation statement you left when you applied on ChangeX. It might be your description right there.
What is your group about? If you haven’t started yet, just describe your plans and ideas. If your group is already up and running, mention a highlight everyone looks forward to.
How can people join you? Do you need any help in setting up your group? Are you looking for volunteers? Can anyone just come along?
Here is an example for a Men’s Shed description:
Later, also make use of your extra fields “Help Needed” and “Volunteers Needed” to show upfront how people can get actively involved, because that's what a lot of people who come to ChangeX are looking for.
