Volunteer Opportunity: Help With Our Maintainer Burnout Session 

As part of GitHub’s Maintainer Month (June), CHAOSS is hosting a one-hour interactive workshop on Maintainer Burnout. This is in the early stages of planning, but you can find more information in the initial planning document. We are currently working toward confirming a date and time, and the agenda. If you would like to help with this event, please reach out to Ruth Ikegah on CHAOSS slack.

Mentorships Being Finalized 

We are currently finalizing the selected applicants for three mentorship programs: Google Summer of Code, Outreachy, and Google Season of Docs. Once the applicants have been chosen and all applicants have been notified, we will be announcing our selections. We are extremely grateful to all who applied, and we hope you will stay with the CHAOSS community in some capacity. We would highly value any contributions you would like to make!
