The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program is sponsored by Johns Hopkins Health System and Johns Hopkins University. The program provides Baltimore City students the opportunity to complete a six-week long paid internship in one of various departments throughout the Institution. The program promotes exposure to careers and workplace culture, while providing an educational experience that promotes mentoring and fosters personal responsibility.

The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program is excited to announce our partnership with YouthWorks. The JHSJP is strengthening our partnership with YouthWorks by aligning our application process. The JHSJP will continue to provide Baltimore City residents the opportunity to complete a six-week paid, virtual internship in one of various departments throughout the Institution or through our Online Virtual Engagement platform.

JHSJP virtual positions are subject to availability by department commitment across the Institution- certain placement areas cannot be guaranteed; the best effort is made by the committee to match students to an area of interest. Past internships have been in the areas of administrative/clerical, patient care and medicine-related, research, information technology, general facilities/housekeeping services, education, human resources and others. Our committee is comprised of representatives from all areas of Johns Hopkins.

Students will virtually work in their respective departments or Edmentum (Online Virtual Enrichment Platform) Monday through Friday.
