Browse around http://sourceforge.com or http://code.google.com or http://github.com or a number of other places. Then just browse around, try things, and if you think that you can contribute, do it!

I personally recommend GitHub. To get start you should check out Help.GitHub.

EDIT: @Dogstopper - You're an expert in sleeping? lulz. Me too.

Python Core is always keen to take on new programmers and help them learn

What language did you have in mind tho? What programming have you done?

github takes a little bit of practice to understand, but with some practice it's pretty easy really. here's my github. Just install git bash and follow the tutorials.
