YES! People from outside of Copenhagen knows how confusing the city can be and can relate to the mentees.
No you don’t need to be an expert. A lot of the questions the mentees have is where to shop, do we have a cinema, how to take the train. If your mentee has a question that neither you or your co-mentor can answer you’re welcome to direct them to the QA Board.
Being a mentor is very flexible, there is no “you have to spend 5 hours pr. week”. As long as you once in a while make a small event/come together for your mentees and answers their question, you’re good to go.
