Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

How to integrate new users in the community. It's one thing to teach someone the basics. This is to break the isolation and increase learning in the community. It's something else to create and build community. A stronger identification with the community increases the chances of giving more input and motivation. Helps to avoid decreasing engagement

What is your solution?[edit]

Design a mentoring program, with trained mentors, which is tailored to new user's needs (according to evaluation) and increases online and offline connecting.
