Not that much work, but somewhat continuous attention. You need to be 
available when you are needed.  Main chunks of work are:

- At the start, get together the initial submission to be an organization.
- Get together good project ideas, weed out the bad ones, make sure that 
every idea has a committed mentor available, should it be proposed and 
- Get together a mentor pool who will evaluate submissions.
- Answer questions from students during the student proposal phase.
- Whip mentors to do their evaluations.
- Once students are selected, ensure that people are happy and 
communicating on a regular basis.
- Whip mentors to do their midterm and final evaluations.

There are some good suggestions on screening project ideas and students 
from the Mentor Summit from last year.
