The volunteer application form was quite lengthy and included essay questions — as though they were seeking to fill full-time internships of the sort offered to students. It was very strange. Then, after the work I put into the process, the organization never got back to me. Not even to say thanks, but no thanks. I eventually let them know I was no longer available, having by then found a couple of other nonprofits to work with.
