New organizer mentorship program

Description: Organizing that first event is so much work! Sleep is lost, mistakes are made, money is wasted, and awesome is reduced. Wouldn’t it be amazing if every new WordCamp organizer was paired up with an experienced organizer who could act as a resource and guide?

Length of Project: Phase 1 (2-4 weeks): Recruit an international pool of willing mentors and define the mentor’s role. Phase 2 (ongoing): as new organizers are approved, assign each a mentor.

Experience Required: Immersion in the WordCamp community and experience running successful WordCamps within the current guidelines. Excellent communication skills.
