What’s in it for you?

You can help us by sharing how we can improve mentorship in the Fedora Project in future. You will enjoy your time networking with others, and may find yourself at the crossroads to take up new mentorship opportunities!
- As a student/mentee: Yyou will get to know our Mentored Project alumni and a lot more leaders in the space. You can interact with them about their experiences and learn how they empower mentees. You will learn how the community looks out for students and projects, and utilize a good networking opportunity.
- As a curious community member: Mentorship is all about skills that you want to learn and pass on. Everyone with the interest to learn, teach, and create a project that leads towards the success of the Fedora Project as an organization can potentially be a future mentor. This event can open doors for anyone willing to learn new skills on mentorship and community building.
