Constrained by qualified mentorship capacity, OSP aims to provide established EA groups with tailored support to help them plan for their semester and troubleshoot problems;
In most cases, mentors should have experience with community-building strategy and running university groups;
This is different from UGAP mentoring because the substance and amount of support will be more variable based on a group’s experience level and particular challenges and opportunities; It will also include more experienced groups.
Time periods for pairing will range from late-December to around May, with specific dates determine by mentor availability. If you’re only free some parts of this range, that’s fine!
Mentors will be [tentatively] compensated for their time and we think this could have a big positive impact in expectation in helping EA uni groups go well;

OSP is a new pilot that CEA’s groups team is running this upcoming semester to provide existing EA uni groups with mentorship and advice.
We think the playbook for established EA groups is currently pretty underdeveloped. This means that, at the current margin, providing more tailored mentorship and guidance to group organizers at established groups seems to be a better strategy. This intuition has been strengthened by the fact that organizers at more established groups have reported mentorship as the most useful component of UGAP for them.
We anticipate being constrained by mentor capacity and we cannot commit to offering mentorship to everyone who is interested in receiving it. Instead, we plan to prioritize offerings based on our analysis of who could benefit most from mentorship.
For groups that we are able to support outside of UGAP, we expect the range of the OSP will provide will span a pretty wide range. By default, we anticipate suggesting one of these four types of mentorship to most groups:
