This isn't a problem.  Drupal had a GHOP (SoC for highschool students)
mentor who was too young to be a student (11 or 12 at the time), I believe
Dmitri also served them as a SoC mentor, I know several SoC mentors are

I'd rather we find a different primary mentor for each student, it'd be best
if every student had a backup mentor in-place from the start as well, but
one person can be a contact point for many ideas.

Ben, would you be OK with being a contact point for 3to2 as well?  We'll
figure out who's mentoring who once we see student apps and decide which
ones we want mentored this year.
