Manager of the 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.
CORA Services is a non-profit agency whose mission is to assist youth, children, and families experiencing emotional, academic, and social challenges which impede their development and productivity. CORA provides this assistance throughout the greater Philadelphia area. "Children are the Heart of the Matter"
The Restorative Justice department of CORA Services is launching the Transforming Justice Hub: a two-tiered project that seeks to empower Philadelphians who have been both impacted by and involved in neighborhood gun violence to interrupt cycles of conflict through community dialogue and community organizing.
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 the overall community in these youth's neighborhoods. The youth participating in the six-month course will partner with CORA staff to facilitate these models in their respective neighborhoods.
This project was designed with the understanding that neighborhood gun violence, and other forms of intracommunal violence, is often a trauma response of marginalized communities being subjected to oppressive living conditions. We seek a Project Manager who shares this analysis and who can engage those at the epicenter of our gun violence epidemic to be leaders and experts in this movement, in an effort to collectively identify and uproot the systemic causes of this crisis.
Starting salary of $55,000 a year. Increases based on experience and credentials.
