collection of paintings and sculpture by prominent Mexican
artists of the 20th century.

JHU Jobs for High-Schoolers
The Discovering Careers Summer Youth Employment Program at

and staff support to Baltimore City high school students.
By providing mentorship, quality experiences and a chance
to perform learning-rich assignments in this six-week,
30-hour-per-week summer job program, departments can
provide a youth with the opportunity to acquire or practice
workplace know-how, as well as the motivation to meet
academic expectations, earn a high school diploma and enter
meaningful employment or further schooling. Students are
paid by the Mayor's Office of Employment Development.
The students in this program have been preselected
from participants in the year-round FUTURES program at six
Baltimore City high schools. Discovering Careers at JHU is
part of the Office of Employment Development's YouthWorks
