Re: [Ambassadors] Re: Student partnership program. Extending fedora mentor program to students.



We also have the Sun Club in University of Calcutta, along with a Microsoft Campus Club. I sure hope that Fedora can start something like that. A club ensures regular meetings and all. The running cost is negligible. Our Administration is very open to such clubs and UG type of things.

hi,

The idea is really great.. Im a college going student just entering 3rd semester in Computer sciences .. and am already looking for programmes and training to add to my CV for a better job.. My college, Manipal Institute of technology, Manipal, India, has just recently become a part of the Sun academic Initiative, which has some perks.. Such an educational programme from Fedora would be more than a dream come true.. A lot of us go through books and material but teaching yourself is not as efficient as a mentor telling you what to do and helping you apply your knowledge practically.. Please give this programme thought.. A few hours a week will be enough from the mentors and there will be plenty of students who are interested and want to learn and contribute..
