Hi,

The IxDA Mentorship volunteer group is ready to formally kickoff the
first phase of the mentorship program. This phase is technically and
logistically simple; volunteers act as "match makers" to pair
potential mentors with those seeking some professional assistance.
This is a fluid, amorphous initiative; there is no set program, or
set of activities for people to do. Instead, we hope to encourage
digital relationship building that can extend into the real world as
appropriate.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, or finding a mentor,
please fill out the forms listed below. If you are interested in
joining the organizational side of this effort, please drop me an
email.

** I need a mentor!
Please visit http://www.ixda.org/mentee.php and fill out the form as
thoroughly as you can. Please note that, while we hope to find
mentors for everyone who needs them, there is no guarantee that we
will find a perfect match for you. The mentorship initiative starts
digitally, through email, but can extend in whatever direction you
and your mentor see fit.

** I want to be a mentor!
Please visit http://www.ixda.org/mentor.php and fill out the form as
thoroughly as you can. An ideal mentor has not only thorough
experience and skills, but also the time and patience to dedicate to
working with those who are learning a new profession. Please note
that, while we hope to find matches for everyone who needs them,
there is no guarantee that we will find a perfect match for you. The
mentorship initiative starts digitally, through email, but can extend
in whatever direction you and your "mentee" see fit.

Thanks,
Jon Kolko

Did you see Kim Goodwin's talk at Interaction'09 about Each One, Teach One?

I walked away feeling more invigorated about the work IxDA is doing, and am
especially proud of the people who have now made IxDA's Mentorship Program
come to life. Sometimes the most effective way to foster and grow
interaction design as a discipline is one person at a time. Here's your
chance.

I just raised my hand to be a mentor. Won't you join me?

Hello,

May I know if the Mentor program is still available? The mentor and Mentee www.ixda.org/mentee.php links doesn't seem to work.
