AIP-354 Community Implementation Update:

On November 29th 2023, AIP-354: ApeCoinDAO AIP Ambassador & Mentorship Program was approved by a DAO-wide vote.

In early December, discussions focused on Web3 education began between ALL CITY and members of Open Campus. Soon thereafter, talks to collaborate on the delivery of AIP-354 started, which then became the base layer for an initiative that was recently passed in the AIP-408: Q2/Q3 2024 Governance Working Group Budget called APE_U, an all-encompassing year-long program which begins with the construction of a comprehensive mentorship framework and the training of up to 10 mentors, which is now in its early stages of operation.

You can view excerpts from AIP-408 that relate to APE_U below, and when you click the hotlink in the final line of the quoted text, view the language used on the APE_U Program Specifications document drawing attention to AIP-354.

The relevant messaging has also been copy/pasted below the quote.
