Get involved with YouTube Contributors

YouTube has designed a program to recognize and support the global community of volunteer contributors.

These passionate volunteers help create the best possible YouTube experience for everyone by:

  • Answering thousands of questions in our help forum (available in English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish)
  • Making YouTube content more accessible and global by subtitling and adding captions to videos
  • Reporting videos that may violate YouTube's Community Guidelines*
*Please note that flagged videos do not automatically get removed. We have trained internal teams, fluent in multiple languages, who carefully evaluate your flags 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year in time zones around the world.
