Great! I think a big challenge is coming up with an appropriately scoped
project for the intern. You can take a look at previous Outreachy and
GSoC proposals[1] to get the general idea, and then think about some
area you feel comfortable working in. You're welcome to send ideas or
drafts to the list to get feedback.

If you're feeling overwhelmed (or even if you're not), it might make
sense to try to partner with somebody else as a co-mentor, especially if
they've participated in the past. (It might also be that you can offer
to co-mentor with somebody else's project proposal).

[1] Older materials can be found at https://git.github.io/, though
    these days the proposed projects go directly into the Outreachy
    system.
