Philadelphia School Partnership – GreatPhillySchools Intern (Paid)

Posted by Philadelphia School Partnership on November 19, 2019

The Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP) works to give every child in America’s fifth largest city the opportunity to attend a great school. We invest philanthropic funds in high-impact schools so they can serve more low-income students—whether they be in the traditional public, public charter or private sectors. Our aim is to catalyze the creation or transformation of enough schools to ensure better options for 50,000 students, or nearly one in four of all Philadelphia schoolchildren. Since 2011 PSP has invested in more than 68 schools of all types, creating new educational opportunity for 28,000 students. PSP also works to create the conditions that enable great schools to grow and thrive, including a strong pipeline of qualified teachers and principals, resources and initiatives to empower parents and families, and policies that enable entrepreneurial school leadership and create opportunity for high-performing schools to grow. Additionally, PSP invests donated funds to catalyze collaboration, facilitating the sharing of best practices among schools and support organizations. Nonpartisan and data-driven, we work with government officials, business leaders, education leaders and practitioners, and community groups to pursue the promise of a great school for every child.

The Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP) believes that helping to empower parents to find, choose, and advocate for higher quality schools of all types (district, charter, and private) is a critical part of our strategy to ensure every child in Philadelphia is enrolled in a great school. We seek to deepen our relationships with partner organizations including school operators, nonprofits, and advocacy groups to empower parents and community members to engage in local education reform efforts. Specifically, we are working to better equip families with information to find and choose great schools for their children. As part of this work, we have created “GreatPhillySchools,” (GPS) a print and web-based resource giving parents access to data on academics, safety, and more. The Intern will support the GreatPhillySchools team in efforts to ensure the quality of the resource and build awareness in communities. The Intern will engage in outreach efforts to schools, early childcare providers, community organizations and partners. S/he will report to the GreatPhillySchools Project Manager and work closely with the entire team including the Director, Manager of External Partnerships, and Data Coordinator.

The internship is a part time, (15-20 hours/week) paid, temporary position for spring 2020, with an opportunity to continue through summer 2020. The Intern is a part time, (15-20 hours/week) paid, temporary position.
