At the end of the year we became more consistent about logging internship hours in the internship program.
Over the course of the year, 3,698 volunteers contributed time. We had an average of 543 active volunteers. This number goes up and down from day to day depending on how many volunteers have logged at least three hours in the last 31 days. The yearly low was 439 active volunteers in January, due likely to weather and holiday issues in December of 2009. The high was 622 in March.
