The mentor must be someone willing to spend a significant amount of time with the project, and be willing to learn many of the construction skills necessary. Notice we didn't say a mentor had to have them to start with! Honestly, the most important attribute is an ability to work with kids. While aircraft building experience would seem like an important factor, it is second to this. If you are reasonably mechanically inclined and can relate well with teenagers, you qualify.

The number of mentors needed will vary with the amount of time each can devote, the number of kids, and at what part of the process you are. Early on, more are needed. With a group of ten, four should be on hand at each session early in the project. That might mean five to eight signed up or on standby. Later, two or three on hand are often enough.

The rewards are incredible! Mentors build relationships that go far beyond the mechanics of building. You will become a part of these kid's lives. ENP believes in turning out students with a well-rounded view of their future. To this end, we encourage social functions and help with AirVenture field trip planning. We even have a Chaplain on staff if students wish to call on him for personal guidance. Being a mentor is a life-changing experience for all involved.
