Help resources for mentors Help resources for communities
The following procedure is only applicable to wikis where the Growth tools are available .

The Growth features offer a mentorship concept. This concept is used by various features the Growth team maintains, namely the Newcomer homepage (which offers a mentorship module to newcomers; they can use it to ask questions) and at some wikis, the help panel.

This page summarizes various features relevant to mentorship, as introduced by Growth features.

Enrolling as a mentor[edit]

Each project has its own list of mentors. You can find the list of mentors for your project on Wikidata.

For more information on how to enroll, please see Growth/Communities/How to configure the mentors' list .

Claiming a mentee[edit]

Several communities have their own wiki courses or in-person mentorship activites. To let them claim newcomers they know in person, a claim mentee feature was enabled. The feature is available to all mentors by default, plus for a list of wiki instructors.

You can learn more details at Help:Growth/Tools/How to claim a mentee .

Integrating Growth mentorship with other parts of the project[edit]

Several communities already had existing mentorship system. It is now possible to integrate them with the mentorship module provided by the Growth features. This is possible using the magic word {{#mentor}}, which provides mentor's username for any given user.

For more information about usage, please see Help:Growth/Mentorship/Integrating mentorship .
