The ASF has been participating in many mentoring initiatives, and it's now +partening in a pilot project with India ICFOSS to provide mentoring for +undergraduated and graduated students that have interest in learning how +to participate in open source communitites at ASF.

+

The mentoring programme is not here to teach you to write documentation or +code. It is here to help you understand how to make a valuable contribution +to an Apache project. You can expect to be guided through our contribution +processes. You can also expect to get technical support with respect to +your chosen project. You cannot expect your mentor to be a "teacher", they +will provide enough information for you to progress within the project. You +need to bring the confidence to take their guidance and discover the detail +for yourself.
