Help Improve the Future of a High School Student

JHU's Discovering Careers Summer Youth Employment Program provides an excellent opportunity for faculty and staff to mentor Baltimore City high school students. In this six-week program, supervisors can provide a youth with the opportunity to acquire or practice workplace know-how, as well as 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 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 summer employment program; jobs cannot be provided to other students through this program.

The employment period runs from July 13 through Aug. 20, a change from previously published dates. Orientation for supervisors and students will be held on Friday, July 9.

Departments interested in one or more student employees should submit the online Summer Youth Employee Requisition Form posted at

If you have any questions, contact program coordinator Matthew Smith at or 410-516-0345.
