Can I be a Mentor Without a Project?
Yes! You can either:
Work with a student who brings an idea to your sub-project. This requires a different level of communication throughout the project, but can be the most rewarding.
Be a general mentor. This is a person who works with all students regardless of their project. To become a general mentor please open an issue in the https://pagure.io/mentored-projects/issues[Mentored Projects Issue Tracker] offering your help. Please ask for tagging the issue with the *Outreachy* label.
Mentor Responsibilities
You are an essential part of the student's success, the project's success, and the success for the Fedora Project.
Being an interface for an identified sub-project or SIG in Fedora.
Helping students communicate with the overall project and any upstream.
Helping the student plan realistic achievable milestones that provide for regular deliverables and feedback.
Regular communication with your student. This means you must be regularly available for the entire project. If you take a holiday you need to know early and help your student be ready for your brief absence.
Attending a brief mentors call, as scheduled.
Be the final, accountable person for deciding if the student is successful or not. This is responsibility akin to being a professor or boss.
