The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program—now in its 28th year—supported 500 students last summer and expects to welcome as many in 2022.
Do you have a spot in your office? The university's and health system's departments and work units are all urged to participate in this important initiative, which provides students with valuable job skills along with opportunities to enhance their personal and professional growth. At the same time, it gives faculty and staff the rewarding opportunity to mentor a young person.
The positions can be either in-person or virtual, and there is no cost to the participating unit for hourly wages.
The Summer Jobs Program was created in 1994 to provide students age 15 to 21 the opportunity to work during the summer at Johns Hopkins University or Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore City and the Greater Baltimore areas. The goal for this year and beyond is to also provide summer internship support to Johns Hopkins entities within the National Capital Region, Howard County, and Florida.
If you are unable to be a host, you can mentor a cohort of students as they progress through an online Career and Education Exploration Platform. This program helps students explore career areas as well as entrepreneurship, civic responsibility, and other topics to foster their personal and professional development.
"Through our collective investment and with the enduring support of Johns Hopkins' departments and volunteers, our Summer Jobs Program will continue to positively affect the lives and futures of students interested in an experience at Johns Hopkins," wrote JHU President Ronald J. Daniels and JHHS President Kevin W. Sowers in an email announcing the 2022 initiative to the Johns Hopkins community.
You are asked to express your interest by completing this form by April 1. Further details and trainings will be provided to those departments or employees expressing interest in hosting or mentoring students. If you have questions, email JHSJP@jhmi.edu.
