Program Manager - Transforming Justice Hub

Interested in working for a non-profit organization rooted in a tradition of care and compassion? Join our team! CORA is a fast-paced, growing organization with over 500 team members and growing with a lucrative benefits package to offer. Our team has been helping children and families experiencing emotional, academic, and social challenges which impede their development and productivity throughout Philadelphia for the past 50 years and we have continued to put our community first.

The Restorative Justice department of CORA Services is launching the Transforming Justice Hub: a two-tiered project that seeks to empower Philadelphian youth who have been both impacted by and involved in neighborhood gun violence to interrupt cycles of conflict, and the systems of oppression that cause them, through community organizing and community dialogue.

In service of this mission, The Hub will host a recurring six-month Popular Education course that trains youth, in neighborhoods most familiar with the conditions of gun violence, to become certified circle keepers, peer mediators, and community organizers. The course comprises 40 hours of facilitation training, 10 hours of political education, and 6 hours of hands-on practice leading restorative justice models. The second component of this project is providing restorative justice services, from de-escalation to healing circles, to our overall community by partnering with the youth apprentices to facilitate these practices in their respective neighborhoods.

This project was designed with the understanding that gun violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence, is a symptom of the material conditions that marginalized communities are subjected to, and that "those closest to the problem are closest to the solution". We seek staff who share this analysis and can engage those at the epicenter of our gun violence epidemic to be leaders in this movement.

The Project Manager will run a 6-month recurring Restorative Justice program. The Project Manager will design and facilitate the program, and oversee the referral process. This position is also responsible for supervising the Youth Services Coordinator.

Qualified Candidates should possess the following:

  • Bachelor's degree in a related field or an equivalent combination of training and experience
  • Minimum 3 years experience facilitating restorative justice models
  • Minimum 2 years experience teaching/serving teens
  • Minimum 2 years experience with grassroots community organizing
  • Minimum 1 year of supervisory experience
  • Experience with office administration systems and procedures
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, including ability to lead presentations in public forums.
  • Proficiency with Zoom, Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook Excel), and the ability to quickly adapt to new software and technology is required
  • Demonstrated understanding and commitment to racial justice, economic justice, disability justice, and gender liberation, with the ability to develop supportive and trusting relationships with people directly impacted by these issues.
  • Demonstrated understanding of the systemic causes of gun violence within marginalized communities
  • Candidates with lived experience and direct knowledge of the issues this program seeks to address are preferred
  • Candidate with valid driver's license and car preferred
  • Enthusiasm for the mission of CORA Good Shepherd Mediation and loyalty to the goals and objectives of CORA Good Shepherd Mediation

*Candidates with bilingual proficiency are strongly preferred.
