This is a thread to encourage folks to talk about Mentorship. The successful pathways begins with mentorship or buddies. There are quite a few examples of successful mentoring programs at Mozilla, but there can always be more.
I propose to use a distributed mentorship system like this one: http://mentoring.is/
Basically, all you have to do is add a subdomain to your site that says that you are willing to mentor, what you’re willing to mentor, and how you want to do it.
I am proof that this is a successful program: I found my first tech mentor through it, and I would encourage everyone in every expertise who is willing to mentor at Mozilla to add the /mentoring button to their site or Twitter or Facebook.
After you’ve added the button, please add your name to this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsUgAOh0ZbN7dDhjMXJoalZ0TmpCRDk2cjFXLU9hY1E&usp=sharing
Let’s start a change and help one another!
Are people excited about this as a possibility? Would they be willing to do this? Comment on this thread!
