CATALYZE A HOME
We believe that real community emerges organically. To invite the conditions for authentic culture to arise, we partner with a few early leaders for each of our homes. We call them Catalysts. They help set the tone for the home, steward a unique vision and model behavior. If that could be you, let’s continue.
THE CATALYST ROLE
Set the tone.
Each of our homes is the unique expression of the group who lives there. As a catalyst, you provide some initial vision and direction to draw in the rest of the housemates, and weigh in on pre-launch details like furnishings.
We believe the best communities are self-chosen. OpenDoor supports with systems and best practices for Catalysts to be involved in the process of outreach and selection of the founding cohort of housemates.
Facilitate the birth.
Running a healthy coliving home requires communication and organization. In partnership with the OpenDoor team, Catalysts help their community establish norms, agreements and culture.
