Welcome to another round of Google Summer of Code and Outreachy!

# We want you!

We're looking for mentors! If you're interested in mentoring, [enter
your information here][1].

[1]: https://wiki.debian.org/SummerOfCode2020/Projects

You can also contact the Debian Outreach team with any questions at
outreach at d.o, on IRC, or on #debian-soc-mentors.

## Projects

All mentors are attached to a project, which must be part of an already
existing team within Debian. Projects should be something that can be
accomplished over approximately three months of full time development
work. GSoC projects must be technical in nature, while Outreachy
projects allow for community, social, organizational, translation, and
other types of contributions.

Every project must have at least two mentors per student. One mentor
(for each student) must either be a Debian Project member OR a well
known, consistent contributor to Debian. We ask that all projects be
submitted to  both GSoC and, if selected, Outreachy. Outreachy has
greater expectations for mentors than GSoC does. However, we believe
it's important to offer students in both programs the same
opportunities. You can, however, submit a non-coding project to
Outreachy, and that will not be included in the GSoC options.

## Responsibilities of Mentors

[Google][2] and [Outreachy][3] provide comprehensive mentor guides.

[3]: https://www.outreachy.org/mentor/

As a mentor you will be helping a student learn! You should be regularly
available to meet with and advise your intern, responding within a
reasonable amount of time. You will also be expected to:

    * help applicants apply and become acclimated to the Debian Project
    * provide feedback about the application process to the Admins and
assist in selecting interns
    * write **brief** weekly reports, using a template, to be submitted
to Debian Outreach

# What are you talking about?

Google Summer [4] of Code and Outreachy [5] are internship programs to
help people get involved in free software. They provide paid internships
for the participants and help grow the project.
