The 2022 Swift Mentorship Program

The Swift Mentorship Program is back for 2022! Interest surveys for the 12-week mentorship cohort will open up on June 1st. When the 12-week mentorship ends in September, we’re also opening up short-term mentorship year round for folks who are interested in receiving guidance on smaller contributions, such as starter bugs.

You can read more about the Swift Mentorship Program, the 2022 timeline, and instructions for how to apply at Swift.org/mentorship. If you’re thinking about applying and would like to learn about the experiences from some of last year’s mentees, you can read about insights from @anhp, @davidReyes, and @amritpan in this Swift.org blog post by @devanshimodha:

I'm really excited about this! I've kinda missed the deadline to apply to be a mentee last year and it's great, that the program is back!

Should I receive some confirmation after I've filled the survey?

There was a confirmation page at the end of the survey to show all of your responses, but otherwise no, the survey is not set up to send a confirmation email. That's certainly something we can add next time if that would be helpful!

Where will the pairs be announced? :smile:

We're still in the process of matching, and we're reaching out to a few more potential mentors to see if we can match a few more folks. To give us a little more time to gather possible mentors, we're pushing out the timeline by a week.

I've updated the 2022 timeline on Swift.org here: [Mentorship] Update the 2022 timeline. by hborla · Pull Request #93 · apple/swift-org-website · GitHub

We apologize for the delay, and appreciate your patience! We're looking forward to getting these matches finalized :slightly_smiling_face:

Whoops, I misread your question as "when" instead of "where"! If you submitted the mentorship interest survey, you will receive an email (on July 4th) to let you know whether or not you were matched / who you were matched with.
