11. What criteria did you use to select your mentors for this year's program? Please be as specific as possible.
People who themselves are willing to help others and have required knowledge to do so are selected as mentors. (Нужны проекты чтобы отвечать подробно)
12. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?
Additional mentors and other students(if they agree) may be assigned to help if students experience lack of documentation on their projects or lack of help. But not much can be done if students loose interest.
If the unfortunate event happens without any chance to get the student back then mentors will try to finish students project given that his project is close to completion.
13. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?
This normally doesn't happen as our mentors are very dedicated and responsible people. In a rare event when this does happen we will try to find a replacement.
