Work for Us

Position: School Marketing Intern (Summer)
Location: Bronx & Harlem
Type: Summer Internship
Salary: $10/hour


Background

The Partnership Schools is a pioneering network of six independent, inner-city Pre-K-8th grade Catholic schools in the South Bronx and Harlem which builds off the proven legacy of Catholic education in character and values formation and draws upon lessons learned from high-performing charter, public and Catholic schools across the country.

The Partnership’s dreams for its students don’t end with 8th grade graduation. The Partnership wants to help its students sustain and leverage the gains they make in Pre-K through 8th grade to be sure they are prepared for high school, college, and careers and able to be productive, caring members of their communities.

In addition to benefitting the 2,066 students that the Partnership serves, our work is gaining significant attention in the national education reform community and has the potential to impact Catholic inner-city education far more broadly. Well poised to make a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of children and families, the Partnership is best characterized by its entrepreneurial spirit and results-driven culture.

School Marketing Intern

In recent years, Catholic schools across the country have experienced enrollment declines and school closures. Marketing and enrollment are crucial for these schools because they receive little to no government funding and rely on tuition and donations to fund their day-to-day operations.

Based on skills and experience, interns will be assigned to two Partnership schools and will alternate between the schools.

School Marketing Interns may be considered for future positions at the Partnership, including ADAs.
