The Independent School Alliance for Minority Affairs (the Alliance) is a leading organization in private school admissions counseling and placement. It was founded by its member schools for the purpose of placing underrepresented students of color at the elementary and secondary levels of independent schools. Since 1985, we have provided access, opportunity, and support to thousands of students across Southern California. Our students become exemplary members of their independent school communities, and very often, our member schools comment that their campuses are better places because of the presence of the Alliance students.
The mission of the Alliance is to empower children of exceptional talent and potential from racially underrepresented and economically underserved communities in order to transform independent schools and society.
The Alliance is seeking a team-oriented, dynamic, creative, and organized Administrative Assistant to support the growth of a mission-driven nonprofit. We seek to REACH our families through our core values: We aim to be Reliable, Ethical, Evidence-Based, Ambitious, Competent, Hospitable & Helpful.
The Administrative Assistant is responsible for a high level of multi-tasking across all core administrative functions and acts as a central liaison across all Alliance departments. The position is also responsible for facilitating the exchange of key information and ensuring the office functions effectively and efficiently.
