The Petey Greene Program is looking for an Executive Director who is an experienced social entrepreneur, with expertise in implementing fee for service models, as well as foundation fundraising. They should be well-versed in the field of criminal justice, with a commitment to expanding access to education for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, while engaging college student volunteers in the work of reimagining the criminal legal system.
The PGP is at an exciting moment in its history: It is part of a growing network of social justice organizations and academic institutions committed to ensuring that incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people have access to the high-quality educational opportunities that they need to thrive, both during and after incarceration. Working at the intersection of current social justice movements and the reinstatement of Pell Grants for incarcerated learners, the PGP is already shaping the national conversation about education in carceral spaces, and it is well-positioned to grow both operationally and in its influence on policy and practice. This is a rare opportunity for a highly skilled leader to join a vibrant organization and lead a passionate and dedicated team, bolstered by an enthusiastic volunteer base, in the work of creating a more just and free society.
Location: Negotiable, with a preference for candidates who reside in the metro NYC-Connecticut-Philadelphia-New Jersey area. The position allows for flexibility to regularly work from home, a co-working space, and/or the PGP’s headquarters in Princeton, NJ.
