Perhaps start these clinics out with .12's or sub 300 fps guns. I know alot of you are gonna say .12's suck and below 300 isn't airsoft etc... But unless I'm wrong isn't the point of this mentoring to make safer players and not more skilled players? Let them graduate into being allowed to use higher end gear after you feel safe playing against them.
Building on what notom said,

If someone in my area was to host a noob saftey clinic, and would let me attend, i would happily come, even if i did have to shoot underpowered guns, it wouldn't be an issue.

Seriously, +1 for noob days! (hopefully in the guelph/KW area)
