Wikimedia has participated in Outreachy since 2013. Outreachy provides internships in open source and open science, to people subject to systemic bias and impacted by underrepresentation in the technical industry where they are living. It is a three-month, full-time internship and runs two editions every year. It is overseen by Wikimedia's Developer Advocacy team. Wikimedia provides funding for Outreachy internships. See full program timeline here.

Be part of something big
We believe that knowledge should be free for every human being. By working with us, you're contributing to one of the world's largest collaborative knowledge base. You will be adding value to the vast pool of knowledge that has been and will keep satisfying the everlasting curiosity of knowing more. You can be part of a team that solves challenges and scales features to a million users. From desktop to mobile to analytics to bots, it has something to offer for everyone.
We prioritize efforts that empower disadvantaged and underrepresented communities, and that help overcome barriers to participation. We believe in mass collaboration, diversity and consensus building to achieve our goals.
Wikipedia has become the fifth most-visited site in the world, used by more than 400 million people every month in more than 270 languages. Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and Wiktionary are some of the other free content projects hosted by Wikimedia thanks to MediaWiki. There is also a wide collection of open source software projects around them.
Much more can be done: stabilize infrastructure, increase participation, improve quality, increase reach, encourage innovation.

- Look through the Phabricator workboards in possible-tech-projects and outreach-programs-projects for project ideas
- Post in the task comments, ask intelligent and explicit questions ("Could you tell me more about this?" is a bad example), do your research thoroughly, don't expect spoon-feeding. That's the recipe for a perfect intern!
