The CRCP Mentoring Project

Wed Jul 30, 2014, 2:28 PM

Mentoring Project @ CR Community Projects!


Here at CRCommunityProjects, we care about you and the community! 
Welcome to our own project, the Mentoring Project! 

This project aims to pair users who are experienced with projects and certain communities within dA.

There are many benefits to utilizing the mentoring program! Getting a mentor will help you learn more about your art community niche and how to set up projects and promote them effectively; becoming a mentor will help you do something wonderful for the community. Involving yourself in this project will hopefully lead to many lasting friendships! :heart:

:note:
This project, however, does not serve to be an art tutor style mentoring project, rather it focuses on the creation on projects, features, contests, groups, and resources! 

Signing Up: 


Obtaining A Mentor

:note: Please note us at CRCommunityProjects with the following: 
Title: Mentor Request
Subject: Gallery of art [you want to be mentored in ] that aligns to the type of projects you wish to create.


We will then match you up with someone else who has applied to be a mentor. :eager:
If there is not a mentor applicant waiting, we will list you below so people can apply to mentor you. 

Becoming A Mentor

:note: Please note us at CRCommunityProjects with the following: 

Title: Mentor Application
  •  Brief description of what kind of project mentoring you will be providing. 
  •  Brief list of what projects/groups/etc you're currently involved in. 
  •  Describe what art community or communities you are willing to mentor in. Please tell us only the ones you feel you are both very comfortable and experienced in. [ You want to be able to answer any questions!] 
  •  Quantity of people you are willing to mentor. Try to chose a number that you can comfortably handle. 
  •  Estimate of the amount of time you can invest in this project. 

Please only apply if you are willing to stick with this program in the long run!

Of course, I imagined that.facepalm 
Ok, I´ll be recommending them in the translation
that it will be useful to use a translator to send the application in English.

Thanks for the answer!Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (Kawaii Jump) [V6]

Hi! I noticed for the signing up section, it says: "We will then match you up with someone else who has applied to be a mentor." Is the group involved in matching mentors to mentees, or do the mentees/mentors do it themselves by contacting each other? I hope that makes sense. Thank you!

:iconastrikos:
Astrikos Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014   General Artist
You can contact each other but it would be best to note us so we can update the journal.
We also can help with the match making, which is usually when there's a perfect genre match.

It usually is situational, you know?

Did everyone just drop their Mentor requests or is there a journal glitch? O.o

Well, a bunch of people requested only art help not project mentoring xD

So they didn't want long term stuff so they got removed?
Reply
:iconastrikos:
Astrikos Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014   General Artist
They got removed because the other admins and I decided that it's a long term mentoring for community involvement (ie, PE weeks in certain genres, contests,features, etc.) instead of a catch all including art tutoring.

Do the mentors have any say in who they mentor? I've tried to mentor people through a similar program in the past, but the majority of the people who asked me to mentor them were just tracing screenshots from shows or painting over photos. I can't help people if they don't even show me their own work, and/ or lie to themselves about it.

Yeah, you're definitely allowed to contact us if you have any problems.
You can also pick from people who are requesting mentors in the list in the article.

I have to ask, would fanfiction count as a community? Or would it just be counted in the literature community?
Reply
:iconastrikos:

It falls under literature, but I would definitely specify for you if you apply!
