There are tons of ways that an organized group of people can contribute to Ubuntu. Here are some of mine:

  • LoCo Activities - formal teams in Ubuntu are called Local Teams (LoCo), they have a ton of information with good ideas on their wiki page. You can find if there's an existing LoCo team in the directory. I recommend you contact them and let them know that you're ready to start planning events at your school.
  • Throw a release party!!
  • You can run an Ubuntu Jam
  • You can run an Ubuntu Hour
  • And of course, you can all particiapte on Ask Ubuntu by asking more questions and answering them - the site is still relatively new and we could always use questions that new users are running into so we can help build a good list of answers.

Ok, thanks, we will first do some mapping for OpenStreetMap, then we will search for bugs and report them. And if it become boring, we will do some "mini-apps" with quickly. – Dorian Feb 17 '11 at 16:54
Had the same question today. I like the Ubuntu Jam and Ubuntu Hour ideas for what I want to do in my city. – Luis Alvarado Nov 27 '11 at 23:30
