Development Intern

Partnership Schools is accepting applications for the role of Development Intern. The ideal candidate is highly motivated, organized, has a passion for education reform and fundraising, and is ready to dive into a fast-paced and exciting entrepreneurial work environment.

The Partnership is a pioneering school management organization (SMO) that is shaping the next generation of urban Catholic education. Granted operational management in 2013 of seven long-standing Pre-K to 8th grade schools in the South Bronx and Harlem, the Partnership is committed to providing students in historically underserved neighborhoods with the academic preparation, values, and skills they need to excel.

The historic success of urban Catholic schools stems not only from a rigorous tradition of academic excellence, but also from an emphasis on developing self-worth, moral character, a love of learning, and a sense of civic responsibility—all part of our long-standing commitment to educating the whole child. The Partnership is unique in knitting this tradition together with lessons from high-achieving public, charter, and independent schools, in the service of our students.

For more than twenty years, the Partnership has raised and invested over $200 million in urban Catholic schools. Today, as a SMO, the Partnership is intensifying its efforts to break the cycle of poverty and close the achievement gap across our network schools. The Partnership currently serves over 2,000 students across the network. 99.4% of the students are minorities, and 65% of the students are Catholic.

At the Partnership, we believe all children can achieve at the highest levels. We are eager to meet candidates that are excited and motivated by the challenge of building from the ground up. If you are interested in serving as a pioneer in education and share an unwavering commitment to raising student achievement and an appreciation and respect for Catholic culture, identity, and values, we want to hear from you!
