Subject [DISCUSS] Jr. Mentor role
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 01:06:11 GMT

ever since Bigtop has incubated I've been thinking
about the experience that I've had and that it would
be very nice if I could help the new projects at least
1/10th the amount of help I received from some of the

Also, seeing a steady stream of graduating projects
I would imagine that some of the newly appointed
VPs might also want to help (especially while the
experience of going through the Incubator is still
fresh :-)).

Now, as it stands it seems like there are two issues
that would prevent somebody like me to actually
help the existing pool of mentors shoulder the
responsibility of shepherding the new podlings:
   #1 formal mentors are required to be IMPC
   #2 the good mentoring skills need to be honed
        over time and can't be assumed

So here's what I'm wondering: is there a place for
a Jr. Mentor type of a role within the Incubator?
Basically somebody who can help more Sr. mentors
with more mundane tasks, but still deffer to their
judgement in certain cases.
