I know this is a bit off topic, but I feel I should point out:

- A free on-line Computer Science 101 class, starting April 23,

   https://www.coursera.org/course/cs101

   (It doesn't use Python, it covers the basics and is taught by the same professor
    that developed the google python class)

- The large, free on-line classes are run around a forum that provide help and interaction.

   This blog entry by one of the professors talks about the experience

Finally, you may want to check Python.org for communities to get involved with:

Hope This Helps,
