Blue Jay Family Ambassadors

Become a Blue Jay Family Ambassador. As an ambassador, you support JHU by volunteering your time to help with campus events and outreach activities in the surrounding area and in your home community. Additionally, you may also serve as a contact person for other families who have questions about the Blue Jay Family experience. Ambassadors develop strong connections to JHU and relationships with fellow Blue Jay Families.

Hopkins Parents Council

Join 70+ enthusiastic Hopkins families from across the country and around the globe who provide leadership support for the Hopkins Parents Fund. Hopkins Parents Council members reach out to other Blue Jay Families to enlist their support, advocate in their home communities, and meet twice yearly on the Homewood campus with university leaders and administrators.

Brown familyWe joined the Hopkins Parents Council because it gives students access to meaningful and impactful experiences and we believe a healthy balance is key to success at JHU. When we hear enthusiasm in our son’s voice when speaking about an event he attended that was made possible by the Parents Fund, it reinforces the value of our contribution. – Michael and Toni Brown P’17

Parents Internship Network (PIN)

The Career Center, Parents Programs and Giving, and the Hopkins Parents Council hope to partner with you to build a network of diverse, meaningful, paid summer internships for rising junior and senior Blue Jays. In 2016, over 200 newly-created internship opportunities were added through the Parents Internship Network! Family members add internships to Hopkins Handshake, the Career Center’s digital platform for students seeking summer opportunities.

Join other Blue Jay Families in supporting student success by submitting an internship opportunity and helping us to grow our impressive roster of companies participating in PIN. Additionally, parents and family members are encouraged to utilize their connections to create exciting opportunities for JHU students.
