What is Drupal?

Drupal is a free, super-powerful content management system for sites that require information posting and collection, including blogs, forums, videos, photos, and databases of information. We think it is the best platform available. Here's why...

Drupal Community Mentor Application

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Another session of the Drupal Career Online program is underway with fresh faces from across the United States and we're looking to provide them with as many advantages as possible. To that end, we're looking for community mentors to help guide, assign tasks, and mentor each student with community-related activities or to just provide general career, project, or curriculum guidance.

We'll ask that each mentor be asked to spend up to 1 hour per week working with their mentee. The majority of your work with the mentee will be via Email, IRC, and Skype, but in-person meetings (if geographically possible) are always welcome as well. 

We believe that a good mentor is patient and willing to let the student decide the path (most of the time). Don't worry if you're not a core contributor, a documention guru, or still learning Drupal yourself (aren't we all?) - if you've got a passion for Drupal that you want to share, then you're exactly what we're looking for.

After the application process is complete, we'll match up mentors with mentees based on common interests. We'll make the initial email introduction, then allow each mentor/mentee pair to exchange contact information and set up a consistent communication schedule. If there's ever any questions/comments/concerns by either the mentor or mentee, we'll do our best to find a solution that works for everyone.

Interested in helping to grow your very own Drupal protegé? Just fill out the application below and we'll be in touch!

About you

Sure, we could look it up based on your username, but this makes it easier for everyone.

We won't share this with anyone except your mentee. We promise.

We ask this to determine what the time difference would be between you and the student. All of our students will be in GMT-4/GMT-5 (depending on daylight savings time).

Themer? Code jockey? Project manager? Cat herder?


We don't care if it was in an informal or formal mentorship program - we just want to know if you've ever mentored anyone in any subject in any capacity previously.

Was it easier or more difficult than you expected? Did you spend more or less time mentoring than you anticipated?


Con, camp, meetup, virtual event - if it was real-time, and you participated, then it counts.

We're talking about events camps, meetups, and code sprints where the primary activity is not social.

Patches and commits both count.
