ProZ.com mentoring program

https://www.proz.com/guidance-center/mentoring-program

"The ProZ.com mentoring program is an initiative intended to provide a means for full members to meet other members who are well-established enough to take on an apprentice. 

The program is particularly useful for members who, for example, have completed formal training in translation or who have acquired translation knowledge, but have a lack of practical experience. Site members seeking advice on translation business-related topics are also welcomed.

For mentors, the program represents a useful means not only of sharing their experience, but also of finding new partners for growing translation teams (the program may prove similar to the "internship" programs that often lead to full-time employment in other industries)."

There is also a video explaining how to become a great mentor:
