Hi Mathieu!

Congrats on taking your idea to the next level. We're really excited to see you connecting with your team and asking such great questions.

I'm happy to offer some extra context around your question: "What do you mean more precisely by "How might mentorship play a role in driving the training and programming forward for youth teachers each year?"

We were wondering whether teacher-to-teacher training might offer an additional layer of mentoring...Perhaps an uncovered gem hiding in your awesome idea! For example, a young person from the previous RSS program trains and mentors an incoming teacher for the upcoming summer. It could be interesting to highlight this dynamic as an added benefit for you mentorship, leadership and development within the program. Just a thought :)

Hope this helps to clarify and please do keep asking great questions!

Hi Bettina,

Congratulations on your idea moving forward and great work forming a team with Jenn. Exciting to see two great minds collaborating on this exciting idea!

Happy to offer more information regarding your sponsorship question – it might be worth thinking about how a company like Travelocity, http://ancestry.com or even Trip Advisor could get excited about sponsoring (funding) your idea. No need to get too specific, just something to keep in mind as you refine further and start thinking about what might sustain the idea financially (longer term).

This suggestion is also intended to inspire analogous research. For example, can you learn from what Trip Advisor is already doing really well? And, what are elements or tools are they missing that would improve the user experience? Insights from this type of research might really inform some key elements in your design. Hope this helps!

Keep up the critical thinking and great questions!

Mirna, this idea is wonderful! It's straightforward and seems ripe for prototyping. Just this weekend, I watched my friend spend one hour with her mom – teaching her several shortcuts for her new iphone. Just this short amount of time made a significant difference for her mom, who learned so much in only an hour. I'm a believer! I'd LOVE to see you partner up with a friend or two and shoot a quick tutorial video on your phone. Maybe pick something that feels super simple to you. Who knows, it could make a world of difference to someone else!

Another build would be to explore the appeal of video editing and production for youth who are interested in honing these type of skills. Feels like a nice way to highlight mutual benefit.

Can't wait to see this idea come to life – let us know how we can help support your efforts!
