Warning: This is an archived page with resources for the Outreach Program for Women; please see the current page with resources for spreading the word about Outreachy
You are welcome to raise awareness about the Outreach Program any time throughout the year. We particularly appreciate people sending the information to the university departments, Free and Open Source Software groups, posting the flyer on university campuses or handing it out at conferences, as well as blogging, denting, tweeting about the programs or encouraging people personally to apply during the application period. For that, we provide a sample e-mail text, a flyer, and even a sample social network update! Application periods usually start in March and in September.
If you are looking to spread the word about other opportunities in Free and Open Source Software, you might find helpful our sections about online and physical spaces where the information was promoted for previous rounds. You can also contact women in technology groups and women in computer science in academia groups listed on the Geek Feminism website.
