Who We Are: The Catalyst Schools www.catalystschools.org believe that every child possesses inherent value and potential, regardless of background, educational level, or life circumstances.
Our college-preparatory schools partner with urban communities to offer K–8 students welcoming educational settings that nurture academic, social, and emotional growth. As students move on to high school, they remain vital members of the Catalyst community through our graduate support programs. We help all students and graduates discover a fruitful path to high school, to college, and to a citizenship that embraces peace, justice, and respect. We actively engage students’ families and neighborhoods, striving to create strong connections between students’ education and the communities they live in. Guided by this mission, we empower our students to become agents of change.
Why We Need You: We are growing rapidly and have a number of projects in our Human Resources department that require the talent and skills of a graduate student who is proficient in technology, has strong business acumen, excellent verbal and written communication skills, a commitment to the value of quality education and a strong desire to work independently to contribute to something bigger than themselves.

- Receive training on and maintain the ADP HRIS system including the development of a robust employee self-service portal as a crucial employee benefits and policies communication tool.
- Develop employee surveys.
