ABOUT US

The Petey Greene Program supplements educational programming in prisons, jails, detention centers, and youth prisons by providing free, quality tutoring to incarcerated people. We work to promote academic achievement in prison classrooms to support the future success of people in prison and to build stronger communities.

To accomplish these goals, the Petey Greene Program builds partnerships between universities and prisons, jails, and youth prisons. The Program collaborates with university volunteering/civic engagement centers, academic departments, and student groups to recruit, train, and coordinate volunteers, typically undergraduate and graduate students. It then works with prisons, jails, and youth prisons to enable these volunteers to work as tutors in adult basic education, high school equivalency, and college programs.

The position would require travel between the university and jail or prison facility partners.

In this role, the Regional Manager will ensure that partnerships with the Allegheny County Jail or other facilities are strong, and will determine the facilities’ tutoring needs for each semester. They will recruit, schedule, and train volunteers. They will meet regularly with faculty and student groups and set up events at universities. The Regional Manager will work to support volunteers to develop a campus culture of criminal justice reform at Pittsburgh area universities, including hosting events and building relationships with key community stakeholders. Beyond these tasks, the Regional Manager is expected to continually support the volunteers at their facilities, specifically by conducting site visits and debriefs, but also through informal coaching and troubleshooting.

The Regional Manager will represent the Petey Greene Program in Pittsburgh and will act as the point person for both the Petey Greene national team and external partners. The Regional Manager also coordinates the Pittsburgh Advisory Board with particular focus on the impact, strength, and growth of the Pittsburgh program.
