== Structure ==
Structure of the relationship between mentor and mentee can and should be defined at the outset by the parties involved. However, here are a few simple guidelines you may or may not want to follow for success:
* Set up a clear overall goal and timeframe. "Learn Ruby" is ok, but is not specific enough. "Create and deploy experimental Vote2Promote discussion board in Ruby on Rails" would be better.
* Set up expectations. For example:
** Set aside time each week to collaborate on articulating weekly goals.
** Establish a communication forum and expected response time in advance.
** Establish "office hours" in chat room or IM for questions and review of progress
* Evaluation: We would love to know what worked or didn't work for advice to future mentors
