Boost general uses advanced C++ techniques so coding opportunities for beginners will be limited. Regardless, you need to acquaint yourself with the various Boost libraries, find some that interest you, look for outstanding bug reports in Trac, try your hand at creating a test to demonstrate a bug, create a patch, then post the patch to the issue.
You can also try to find doc requests or identify doc deficiencies and offer to write the new content for the library maintainer.
