I think you should try OPW

Today I will not talk about my project, but I'll talk about the internship program that gave me the project that I'm doing , the OPW.

But ...
What is the OPW ?
Outreach Program for Women ( OPW ) is a program whose goal is to promote diversity in the free software world . This is an internship program organized by the GNOME Foundation to involve women ( cis and trans ) in the world of free Softaware and Open Software . There are several free softwares organizations participating . Each of them have a great community of which you can participate , learn a lot , help and be helped . And not only during the internship period , but always . The cool thing is that you don't need  be a student :-) You just want to participate .

Are you wondering how can you participate ?
See the available projects , then go to the channel of the chosen project , talk to the mentors and they will tell you to apply a patch to the project which you have interest. They show the bugs available and you will have to solve one of them, making a significant contribution .
