CNCF is again very excited to participate in the upcoming LFX (previously CommunityBridge) Spring Term from March 1st – May 31st. We have 15 Graduated, Incubating, and Sandbox projects participating with 35 project ideas available to mentees. Similar to Google Summer of Code and Outreachy, LFX is a platform that brings the opportunity to offer paid internships and mentorships to developers interested in getting involved in open source projects.

If you are interested in working on one of the below projects (also on GitHub), you can apply directly on the LFX platform by February 12th.     

Mentees will be contacted about the outcome of their application by February 26.

Feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any questions or in the #mentoring channel on the CNCF Slack
