I have no precise idea on whats expected from such a mentor but I can 
help you with this effort or atleast providing pointers. While we are on 
this topic, I think the following would help promoting Fedora for 
schools and colleges.

1) Build a Live CD based on Fedora repository packages (Core+Extras) 
targeted at schools. Get whatever packages into the repositories to make 
this happen
2) Build a installalable version of the same
3) Continue working on modifying the trademark guidelines to enable such 
things to happen under a Fedora banner.

Rahul
