Join our mission

At Zeta, we pursue an unprecedented combination of high academic achievement and social-emotional development. We insist that every child receives a world-class education while fostering a love for learning. We are changing the public education landscape for all of New York City’s children, and we are uncompromising in our mission. 

To achieve our vision, we are searching for ambitious Community Alliance Associates who have a Bachelor’s Degree along with superb interpersonal skills and proven organizational abilities.  

Deliver incredible results

As a Community Alliance Associate, you will be an ambassador of Zeta’s burgeoning brand and a catalyst for all school community communications. As a part of the school operations team, you must foster relationships with students, staff, families, and other stakeholders in order to ensure all members of the community feel welcomed, informed, and included. You will serve as the nucleus of all school communication and event planning, and with the support of the Operations Director at your school, you will create and adhere to processes designed for operational excellence and efficiency.

Initially, you will work to recruit students for Zeta’s new schools with our student recruitment team, while learning the ropes before taking on the role at your own school. This role will also be responsible for serving as the point person in our front office, ensuring all Zeta visitors receive above and beyond service. 

Bring your whole self

We want team members who are passionate about our mission, vision, and core values. You will make a tremendous team member at Zeta if you bring a mindset of growth, flexibility, and openness to feedback. You are hungry and determined to not only meet your goals, but surpass them at all costs. You are highly skilled at effectively communicating with your team members, both in good times and bad.


We maintain an unrelenting focus on team, so you must be humble, willing to put the team’s needs ahead of your own, and committed to contributing to a collaborative work environment.  At Zeta, your voice will be valued.


We want lifelong learners who live with child-like joy and passion. At Zeta, we need you to bring your passion for learning, disrupting the status quo, and tackling problems with creative solutions.   Bring your whole self to Zeta.

For this role, Spanish language proficiency is definitely preferred but not absolutely required.
