The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth has exciting summer employment opportunities for office assistants in our academic day programs. For decades, CTY summer programs have provided a fun and enriching experience for academically advanced elementary, middle, and high school students Working with CTY in the summer can provide a great opportunity to work with dedicated colleagues, diverse professional staff members, engaged students. Opportunities are available for staff to work either four or seven weeks. General assistants (GAs) are responsible for providing general support to the CTY day program. Although certain activities are typical (supply runs and office coverage), specific tasks and responsibilities can and do change according to each day's needs. GAs are often called on to assist in unexpected or emergency situations, such as substituting for an absent program assistant. Very hectic periods may be followed by slow ones which require the GA to take initiative in identifying tasks to perform. In addition, the role of the GA varies somewhat from site to site depending upon the needs of the specific program."Everyone in the office worked together very well and the camaraderie has been amazing.
