Teen Forumz Mentors
We used to do this on the teen forum that I moderated at. Here's the deal:
Members will have the option to be partnered with a mentor. A mentor is someone that will help the members assigned to them feel welcome on the site and help them learn their way around. Your mentor can be your go-to person for advice, questions, or whatever you need them for. Keep in mind that your mentor is not the only person that you can go to. You can ask all members of the site questions and interact with anyone.
I realize that we have a few staff members dedicated to this type of thing, but I was thinking that if a few more got involved in the welcoming process and we had others in the community besides the PAs helping members find their way around, it might make members feel more welcomed.
Mentors would not have to be staff. A mentor would be someone who has been around for awhile and is interested in contributing more to the well-being of Teen Forumz.

If you need advice/assistance or are interested in becoming a mentor, send me or one of our Community Managers a VM or a PM.
