Have you heard about outreachy, no? then this blog is for you it will cater to all your doubts regarding it, so without wasting a lot of time let's start.

What is outreachy?

  • It's a 3-month remote internship program.

  • It is only for underrepresented people who could be males/females/transgenders or any other kind the point is you have been discriminated against in tech communities.

  • In this many great open-source organizations also take part in it.

  • The duration is generally up upto 3 months.

  • Now the greatest question you all might have stipend! how much?

    so the answer to this question is $7000

    But! I would still say the money should not be the motivation instead focus on learning new stuff.
