Outreachy community coordinators provide a consistent person the Outreachy organizers can contact for information. The community coordinators duties include:
If you feel you can fulfill those duties, please apply to have your community participate in Outreachy!
FOSS communities that wish to participate in Outreachy should review the requirements, find at least one mentor, secure funding for one intern, and then contact the Outreachy organizers to be approved for the program. Be sure to include the following information in your introductory email:
Name of project
Name of community organizer
Contact information for funding source (Name, email, company name)
How many interns will you be funding?
Project home page URL
What open source license is the project under? If contributing requires a CLA, please add a link to that.
The following information is optional to include in your initial email, but providing it will help the Outreachy PLC evaluate your community's fit for Outreachy more quickly
Documentation URL for how new developers get started
Bug tracker URL (optionally, including the URL to "easy" or "newcomer friendly" bugs/features)
How big is your community?
What different companies are involved in the development of your open source project?
Do you rely or build upon proprietary software? Please elaborate.
Does your community have a Code of Conduct?
While you are waiting for acceptance from the Outreachy PLC to participate, please work on your open source organization's Outreachy landing page. (In the future, Outreachy is planning to host community and project pages on its website. For now, projects will need to host their landing page on a community website, such as the project wiki. It's good to let your FOSS community know you're participating in Outreachy before applicants start showing up and making their first contributions to the community.)
Start hanging out in #outreachy and #outreachy-admin on GIMPNet (irc.gnome.org). You are welcome to pitch in answering any questions from prospective applicants on the mailing list and the IRC channel.
Make sure to spread the word about your participation in the program in your organization's communication channels, such as mailing lists, blogs, and social network accounts.

Required and optional skills that applicants should have. Please keep this list short, because people who are traditionally underrepresented in tech often don't apply unless they meet all of the requirements.
