Help with Web Development for school

Hello I am a senior in high school. To graduate one of the requirements is to do a year long project that can be about anything. We also need a mentor to oversee at times and help if/when needed. For my project I want to make a social network but can not find anyone in my area who works with web development. I was wondering if there was anyone here that would be willing to help out ,or at least direct me to someone that would be willing to help.

If anyone could help please respond to this.

Thanks: James
