We started a mentorship programme in the summer of 2018 and have so far run three rounds, each lasting four months, though some mentorships continue after that. We are about to start another one in September which will run till the end of this year. For more information read about the first run from July to November 2018. We did not get enough feedback to do a similar writeup for the other rounds, but from informal feedback it looks very much like they mirrored the experience of the first round.
Please be aware that you can only take part if we have met you in person, so you should either come to the kickoff meeting, or we should have met you at another one of our events.
Outside the mentoring programme we are not directly matching up mentors and mentees, but would still encourage potential mentors and mentees to find each other via posts on the #mentoring channel on our Slack group.
When you start a mentoring relationship, please have a look at these guidelines: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FObFIDcDcwbUTulwO0TXneWsd6Puo3n9BUPyOgvWsfI/edit?usp=sharing
Last but not least, mentoring can and often does happen spontaneously at one of our events, especially at hack nights or webdev101.
