Mentorship Program Self organized?
I was just talking to a great and very experienced guy in Los Angeles. And he will set up the local event in Los Angeles.
I was telling him about our mentorship program idea. And as always he was super excited about it and offered to be a mentor right away.
This got me thinking. One more time. If there is so much enthusiasm ... Maybe we can have a more selforganized Mentorship program.
"Meet The Mentors"
- We set up a category called "Meet the Mentors"
- We publish a call for mentors
In this call we ask the people to open up a thread in the "Meet The Mentors" category where they introduce themselves and their field of expertise. And where they can write down, when they will answer the questions. We can provide them with a simple template to do introduce themselves.
From there we only have to advertise it.
And if we know really cool people we want to become mentors - we can personally engage with them and help them to set up this thread. But only when there is time.
I think this can very well work together with the network @JayKay opened up for us.
And it is not resource intense! Not at all.
What do you think?
