A Community Leader is a regular homesteader in Baja who has volunteered his or her time online to help their fellow homesteaders.  These people show a willingness to donate time, knowledge and experience to help others to create, maintain and troubleshoot problems that they may come across while homesteading in GeoCities.

The requirements to become a Community Leader in Baja are few but are very important.   They are listed below.

Baja Community Leader Application Form

 

This is the Baja Community Leader Application Form. Please feel free to read it through before filling it out.

Remember, being a Community Leader is an important responsibility. Children under 13 are not permitted to apply. The personal information you will be providing is being sent to and collected by a volunteer, a Community Leader, and NOT an employee of GeoCities. This information is being collected solely for the purpose of evaluating your application to become a Community Leader, and determining whether you should be accepted as a Baja Community Leader. As part of the evaluation process, your information is likely to be reviewed by other Baja Community Leaders, and may be kept on file by the Baja Community Leaders for an indeterminate period of time. Please contact leaders@oocities.com if you have any questions about how your information is used.
