Mentoring the Mentors

This session was September 20, 2014 3:45pm to 4:30pm in !

The Drupal core mentoring program has been growing. We have participants in IRC every week, and new contributor sprints have been well attended at every event. People want to give back, and we are attempting to give them a path to doing so, but we still need help. We always need new mentors and continued support from the community because without these new contributors, core development cannot scale.

The good news is, you too can learn to mentor in the Drupal community or your organization. This session will be intended to give an overview of what it takes to be a good mentor in the Drupal community, and hopefully bring the lessons learned back to your organization. There will be specific focus on the techniques we use to mentor new contributors, and strategies for helping people succeed. 

You will come away from this session with an understanding of the Drupal Core Mentoring program, some tools you can use in your community or organization, and knowledge about where to find more information.
