As for expectations of such a program, I think from my perspective I would
be looking for pointers to information & resources to get started learning
proper "Ubuntu" method of doing things.  Followed with the ability to ask
followup questions as needed.

I agree with the comments made by ScottK and others that the program
shouldn't be hand-holding and that mentors cannot sponsor the mented (if
that is a proper word).  There should be a clear dilineation between work
done by the individual and support provided by the mentor.
