Do you want to have a first-hand experience of how President Carter's sense of hard work and dedication were installed in him at a young age? Consider volunteering with the maintenance department of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site! Currently, we are searching for volunteers to help with the preservation of our site and the timelessness of President Jimmy Carter's childhood. Duties will consist of projects similar to the everyday chores Jimmy Carter accomplished as a young boy in Southwest Georgia. Examples include repairing gates and fences, as well as stabilizing and replacing stair treads and hand rails. You may sign up for a specific, one-time task or choose to assist on an ongoing basis. All work will be done under the supervision of the Chief of Maintenance or their designee.
Volunteers must pass a federal background investigation.
