 Position Title: Administrative Assistant

 

Positions Status: Part-Time

 

Reports To: Executive Director

 

The Organization:

Partakers supports Massachusetts prison education by coordinating teams of volunteers who mentor incarcerated people who are enrolled in Partakers College Behind Bars (CBB) and formerly incarcerated people in our re-entry initiative, Partakers Empowerment Program (PEP). Partakers CBB provides mentorship to incarcerated people as they pursue higher education through the Boston University Prison Education Program, the Tufts Prison Initiative, Boston College Prison Education Program, and the Emerson Prison Initiative. Through PEP enrollment, formerly incarcerated people can acquire resources such as computers and enhance skills critical to successfully transitioning to life outside. In PEP workshops they learn to use technology and acquire job search skills. Both programs provide opportunities and support well-being, personal growth, and life fulfillment. Partakers is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible non-profit organization.
