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.

Subject: Looking for a co-org-admin for Outreachy 11
To: Wikimedia developers <>

Hi, we are looking for volunteers willing to get involved in the
organization of Wikimedia's participation in the upcoming round of
Outreachy, a program to involve underrepresented communities in open source

Experienced org admins like Niharika Kohli, Andre Klapper and myself are
looking forward to support new volunteers in this role. 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? Just reply to this email or comment at
