Consider applying for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Health Assistant position this summer. We're more books than bug bites and algebra than archery, but our students have the time of their lives in both engaging classes and exciting social activities. They come for the classwork, but fall in love with our beautiful college campus settings, our energetic staff, and their new best friends. Our staff retention rate is robust, and we provide competitive pay plus room and board. Health Assistants must be at least 21 (for insurance purposes) and have a good driving record as they are required to drive site vehicles.  CTY offers the Health Assistant position at sites in CA, MD, VA, RI, PA, NJ, and NY

To apply for this position (or others!) at CTY, please access the application here:
