Forwarding to this list, just in case you ro someone you know is interested. You need to be tech-curious for this volunteering role, but developer skills are not required. Community management and project management skills are more necessary.

We also have a solid and reasonably well documented process in place helping the onboarding of new org admins, mentors, and interns. This is a good chance to grow your tech community management experience in a safe and supportive context, dedicating about 2-4 hours per week between October and February. About half year ago, I asked for volunteers to become co-org-admins of the upcoming Google Summer of Code and Outreachy round. Niharika Kohli answered back, and she has been an amazing org admin since then. I'm not exaggerating when I say that her involvement has been one of the best things impacting my work this year. She has learned and enjoyed a lot, and she has been very helpful to the interns and mentors that are concluding their projects as we speak. Interested?
