Volunteer Opportunities

The Alumni Association offers dozens of ways to get involved with the Johns Hopkins community. No matter your interest, background, hometown, or availability, we’ve created a vast array of opportunities for you to become active in the life of the university. 

Get Involved with Your Local Chapter or Affinity Group

New to New York? Lost in London? Chances are there are other Johns Hopkins graduates in your city who are eager to welcome you to your new surroundings. There are over 35 alumni chapters and clubs worldwide, all of which are dedicated to planning fun events that promote alumni interaction. Learn more about your chapter or club and get involved.

Got interests? Of course you do. The Alumni Association is always seeking alumni leaders to help guide our communities. With your help, we can strengthen the Johns Hopkins alumni community together.

Help with a Reunion Committee

If you would like to help plan reunion events for your class, you can join your class committee. Call the Homewood Alumni Relations Office at 410-516-5185, or email us at reunion@jhu.edu.

Career Center

The Career Center partners with alumni to help current students explore different career options, locate internship and job opportunities, and prepare for upcoming interviews. If your organization is currently hiring either for internship or full time opportunities, visit the Career Center website.


The Johns Hopkins University Office of Admissions and the Office of Alumni Relations have developed a new program, the Hopkins Alumni Admissions Volunteers (HAAV), which is aimed at identifying and attracting the best undergraduate students to our campus.  HAAV members support the admissions office by conducting interviews, participating in recruiting events, and attending admitted student receptions.  We are looking for recent Krieger and Whiting graduates who are interested in participating and sharing their Johns Hopkins experiences.  If you would like more information or like to join, please contact us at haav@jhu.edu.

Alumni Council Nominations

The Alumni Council is a 64-member governing body of the alumni association. It meets once a year to establish policy, reacquaint members with the university and its programs, and advise the university on alumni affairs. Members, who must be nominated, serve three-year terms, renewable once. They must annually support the development efforts of the university.

Student Send-off Party

Each summer, send-off parties for incoming Johns Hopkins students are hosted by alumni in over 25 U.S. cities. It's a great way to welcome new students to the Johns Hopkins community and bring together alumni. Whether it's a backyard cook out, a party on the beach, or a pool party, the send-off parties are always a lot of fun, and they strengthen the intergenerational bonds of the Johns Hopkins family. If you want to host a send-off party, call the Alumni Relations Office at 410-516-0363, or email alumni@jhu.edu.
