By way of Beth Kanter at the Net2 blog, a cool blog mentoring project from one Katy Pearce:

Interested in developing the worldwide blogosphere? Like working with young people?

We are looking for bloggers from around the world to be a blogging mentor for 1 week sometime in February, March, April or May 2006.

The project, Young Caucasus Women, is a group blog for young women from the Caucasus region (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia). The young women will be given a topic to blog on each week, although they are welcome to blog on any topic throughout the week.

We need bloggers to blog on a specific topic on Sunday, hence inspiring the young women’s blog entries. The topic and week need to be determined at least a month in advance.

Then throughout the week, the adult mentor blogger would need to comment on the young women’s blog postings.

THAT’S IT – simple, yet a project with a lot of impact.

You don’t need any background in the region. Just be culturally sensitive, have a topic that would be of interest to international young women and have a blog. We’d love to have English language bloggers from around the world.

Interested or know someone who is? Contact katy (at) katypearce (dot) org for more information.
