Joy was very unpleasant. It was clear that she did not want me to volunteer, despite the fact that I am very qualified and was willing to make a long term comittment. She stated that, since they would invest 20 hours of training, they require a 2 to 3 year committment. Really? Is that what you tell all your volunteers? When I was willing to make that committment, she was very rude to me and to the volunteer that was part of our conversation. Joy does not exemplify the "friendly" aspect of this organization. Very disappointing.
