[PLUG] Volunteering

My friend has been looking for a IT job for the last 1.5 year and its
been an up hill battle ever since. She submitted more than 100+
resumes and had some interviews but to no avail. She understands she
does not have a lot of programming experience (she is coming from the
business side) but would like to step into it since she enjoys it. I
told her volunteering to an opensource project would be ideal but I
too am confused what would be a good project to volunteer.

Can anyone recommend a project she can get her feet wet with? Are
there any projects where mentors or senior people are assigned to
newbie volunteers? Has anyone had experience (good/bad) with such
