- A Mentor may join the Hackathon with a team by filling out both sections of the Registration form. Alternatively, a Mentor may request that a team is allocated by filling out Section 1 only.
- The Mentor shall read and agree to Child protection principles attached to the Mentor registration form.
- The Mentor will attend an online discussion with the local ENABLE representative to clearly understand the role and obligations.
- The Mentor will contact his/her team (with info-ENABLE @eun.org in copy) to set up a first online meeting. The aim is to analyse with the Team the process of bullying in order to define the app, video or any other tool that the Team will create to prevent and/or combat bullying.
- The Mentor will organize a second online meeting in September to check the Team’s progress and ensure that the creation is submitted to ENABLE.eun.org with a short description by 27 September, 2015 before 23.00 CET.
- If the Mentor’s Team is selected to attend the event at Facebook, London to showcase its creation (for 2 days between 10-14 October 2015) the Mentor is invited at his/her organisation’s own cost, to attend the event. Mentors may also, at the cost of their organization, cover the travel of their Team to the London event.
Your role is to accompany your Team at the online meetings, encourage and support them in creating their product, but NOT to create or code the product for them. You will act as representative for the young people in all official steps involved in the Hackathon: registration, setting up the two meetings with the Mentor, submitting the product by 27 September, 2015 before 23.00 CET, and accompanying the Team to the London EU Code week event.
Acting as a Mentor to a team of young people is considered a “position of trust”, and hence requires you to adhere to a few basic principles. Please tick the box ‘I agree’ at the end of the following 5 points.
- Meetings with the Hackathon team of young people shall be exclusively online, and shall systematically include info-ENABLE@eun.org in copy. Online discussions shall be limited to the topics of bullying and the creation of the tool which is the object of this mentorship activity.
- Parental consent must be obtained if, for any reason, a face-to-face meeting is envisaged (for example, to accompany a winning team to the Hackathon event); info-ENABLE@eun.org shall immediately informed of any such request.
- In case of inappropriate behavior: it is in your interest to remember that inappropriate behavior, or allegations of such, can also occur via the telephone, Internet and e-mail. For this reason we request that you keep info-ENABLE@eun.org team in copy at all times, and that no online discussion takes place with less than two young people from your team. Info-ENABLE@eun.org shall be immediately informed of any allegations made by a team member or supporting adult.
- Bullying may be a delicate subject for certain young people. If it comes to your attention that a team member is in distress or in need of support, please contact info-ENABLE@eun.org. The national ENABLE representative will discreetly investigate the situation and, if deemed necessary, may provide psychological support via a national helpline service.
- Videos and photographs of young people are considered personal data, according to the Data Protection Act 1998. Written consent shall be obtained before any images of team members are created or displayed. If the data subject is capable of comprehending the implications of consenting to the data use, then their consent should be sought; otherwise, the consent of a parent or legal guardian shall be obtained. Whenever an image of a child or vulnerable adult is published, the data subject should, as far is as practicable, be unidentifiable.
