Instructor with students 

Our K-12 outreach includes Brownie troop visits in our wet lab and hands-on science experiences for seventh graders; high school student engineering and writing summer camps; and an annual art show for high school students. Our campus hosts an annual bread baking event for fourth-graders so they learn the chemistry of bread baking and the importance of giving back to the community. The campus also plays a vital role in Frontiers in Science and Medicine Day for seventh graders.

Osher students having a discussion For the county’s retired and semi-retired professionals, we host Osher at JHU, a membership community that provides a vibrant educational and social environment and offers a rich array of stimulating non-credit courses, lectures and activities, along with opportunities for social interaction during fall and spring semesters.
Art exhibit featuring local artists The campus supports a vibrant arts program that features rotating exhibits each year in two separate galleries. Past exhibits have featured artists from local high schools, Montgomery College, Leadership Montgomery, Osher at JHU and the Hispanic community. Learn more about our Arts Program.
A stand at the farmers market The campus hosts a weekly Shady Grove Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market from May through October.

Do you have an idea or proposal for how we can partner with your local organization to give back to the community? Contact us and let us know!
