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
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.
