College Student Volunteer Program 

NWS Peachtree City/Atlanta, GA


The NWS Peachtree City/Atlanta, GA Volunteer Program is a way for students interested in a future career with this National Weather Service to gain experience in our operations. Through weekly meetings, you will gain a better understanding of what we do in the NWS as well as how we interact with partners. In addition, you will work on a project of your choosing through the semester to see how your coursework can apply to operations. This program is run for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters to provide more opportunities as we can only take a limited amount of volunteers.
