GSoC is a global program runs completely online, an initiative started by Google back in 2005. GSoC Program is designed and sponsored by Google. Goal of the program is to encourage college students of any age in contributing to Free Open Source Software (FOSS) projects.

Joomla's GSoC team helps in Joomla's Participation with GSoC Program, we are team of volunteers where each person has a dedicated role, and all of us work towards developing features during the summer which help in improving Joomla. Each project being implemented for Joomla! has Mentors who help/guide college students to achieve the goal.
