Website Description Free to search for and connect with other developers looking to mentor. Easy to use. Open source and created by @emmabostian Free to search for and connect with up to 3 individuals. Easy to contact via Messenger. Also makes it easy to mentor others.

While there are plenty of paid mentorship programs (there are large equity related issues here), what free mentorship programs have you used or would you recommend to junior developers?
