From the official website
: Outreachy provides
three-month internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented
in tech. Interns work remotely with mentors from Free and Open Source Software
(FOSS) communities on projects ranging from programming, user experience,
documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.
The Outreachy programme is possible in Debian thanks to the efforts of Debian
developers and contributors who dedicate their free time to mentor students and
outreach tasks, and the
Software Freedom Conservancy
support, as well as the continued support of Debian's donors, who provide
funding for the internships.
Join us and help extend Debian! You can follow the work of the Outreachy
interns reading their blogs (they are syndicated in Planet Debian
