Let’s see how you can get started.
Connect with Trailblazers from Anywhere
Trailhead and the Trailblazer Community are part of one unified platform. The Trailblazer Community helps you learn relevant skills, connect with other Trailblazers, and give back.
When you follow a Trailblazer, follow a topic, or join a group, you see updates in your feed.
Learn Relevant Skills
As a member of the Trailblazer Community, you're also part of the Salesforce ecosystem. You can explore the ecosystem and expand your network by joining groups both online and in-person, and you can learn more about specific subjects with topics. Discover and follow featured topics, ask questions and tag them with topics to get a conversation started, and get answers from Trailblazers around the world.
You’ll also see recommended Trailhead modules and projects in the sidebar of the Community. If you see a module you’re interested in, favorite it for later or jump right in and start learning.

Connect with Trailblazers
The Trailblazer Community is home to thousands of groups. Some are created and managed by Salesforce, while many others are led by Trailblazers like you. Groups are where Trailblazers with common interests gather to discuss multiple topics. A group can be private, public, or unlisted.
Giving back is part of the Trailblazer Community’s DNA. The best way to give back is by sharing your knowledge and expertise with fellow Trailblazers. If you’re an expert yourself, answer other Trailblazers' questions. Answering questions is a great way to build your profile in the Trailblazer Community, make new connections, and give back.
And if you’re just starting out, know that the entire community is cheering you on. Many groups, topics, and resources focus on students and job seekers. If you’re new to Salesforce or looking for a career change, a mentor, or a workforce development organization to support your transformation, explore resources on Trailblazer Connect.
