Github project voluteering

I’m attempting to improve my software skills and gain experience by volunteering
part-time for some small projects on github. Could someone please refer me to a list of projects that require basic volunteer work.

Thanks.

The following will give you a list of issues where the repository owner has requested help:

The following will give you a list of issues where the repository owner thinks it’s a relatively simple issue for folks to try:

Unfortunately, Github doesn’t provide many tools to find projects. You’ll probably do better by searching github for keywords based on things you are interested in, then filtering on the programming language(s) you have some skills in.

Also, https://github.com/explore

Another good option might be to look at project you’re already using, and see if there are issues you can help with. There often is something, or maybe there’s some change you’d like to propose. In the latter case it’s generally good to talk to the maintainers about the idea before putting in a lot of work.

If you’d like people to propose projects here it might help if you give us some idea of what you’re looking for: What are you interested in, and what skills do you have?
