Initiate trainings that perpetuate themselves. Introducting a community-organizing method I have used, also anecdotes from other communities. Similar to each-one-teach-one but faster, a grassroots method called peer-to-peer education. A small group can get things rolling and the larger community benefits.

For Debian community, skills training might best include good governance processes, moderation, conflict resolution, meeting-efficiency or similar topics. Debian already depends on overlapping group projects supporting a larger whole. So peer-to-peer training should feel natural. An early draft of this talk was presented during the MiniDebConf Online in May 2020.
