Ok, this is a bit of a random one for you all but you might be able to help.

Basicaaly I've been asked to look into a way that we can have students being able to communicate with a member of the local community and get mentoring from them (preferably not using their student email addresses).

I've had the idea of setting up some sort of portal that the students can log onto and be able to message their mentors and then have their mentors login and reply etc.

Obviously we want to be able to monitor the way this is done and make sure that it is 100% safe for the students to use. I'd prefer to set it up and host it onsite because we don't have any budget available for it. I've been looking around the net for a mentoring portal script etc but as of yet have had no luck. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation
