The Canvas

Didn't find a group that fit your needs? You can create one! 

But before you click the Create button on the Group landing page, please view the Minimum Viable Community Canvas. This template (which will prompt you to make a copy, then open in Google Slides) allows you to sketch out what you are thinking and can be a great tool to communicate with potential members.
