What is the Mentorship program?
We have two types of mentorship programs.
The traditional program matches a successful applicant with an industry professional who will mentor them for 6-12 weeks. The length of the mentorship depends on the availability of the mentor. Along with a mentor, the mentee is assigned to an open source project that they will be contributing to. This will allow the mentee to gain experience in the field, give back to their community and utilize what they are learning.
The peer-to-peer program matches applicants with a peer, or group of peers, to work on a real world project that will be overseen by a mentor. The project you work on can be one that the group comes up with or an existing open source project that aligns with the skills members are trying to sharpen. This approach focuses on sharpening skills and nurturing the entrepreneurial side of our members.
