Mentorship Program

What is it?

The Open Web Sandbox is a community based organisation within the NEAR Protocol ecosystem. Our goal is to provide a human-centric digital hub for everyone wishing to engage with projects building on top of the NEAR protocol.

Our mission is to facilitate collaboration between communities that seek to create opportunities through projects, and contributors who want to take those opportunities and contribute to the ecosystem.
