Greetings all! I'm very new here so allow me to quickly explain/introduce myself. I'm currently in college studying in the STEM field with hopes to work in public service for a career. I've been really wanting to volunteer in a public service capacity again (I did it in high school for a public safety agency) and the USCG aux seems to be the most exciting and the place where I feel I could give it my all and could benefit from that effort. I had a few questions:
-There are quite a few flotillas in the Orange County area so does anybody know anything about each one?
-With my previous volunteer experience, there was a 5 day sleep-in training. How does the training for the auxiliary work? Is there a long course that is taken straight away or is it broken up into sections? And are classes for qualifications offered similarly?
-What is the expected time commitment of a member? I don't ask this to meet the bare minimum but I would like to know what is expected (weekdays, weekends, holidays, days, nights, etc.)?
