About Us

The Petey Greene Program supports the academic goals of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people through high-quality volunteer tutoring programs, while educating volunteers on the injustice manifest in our carceral system.

We envision a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high-quality academic programs and we strive to inspire our alumni - both students and tutors - to become advocates, and to take on leadership roles that reimagine the criminal legal system. 

The PGP operates the largest multi-state volunteer tutoring program for currently and formerly incarcerated people. Since its founding, the PGP has tutored more than 16,000 students at over 120 tutoring sites, including both correctional facilities and reentry programs. We've trained and placed more than 3,500 unique volunteers and recruited from more than 40 partner universities in seven states and the District of Columbia.

The PGP is headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey, but the majority of our 30 employees work in a hybrid arrangement in their respective regions. 

The Role 

The Division Manager will be responsible for ensuring the provision of high-quality tutoring services for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students in New Jersey.  This includes managing several programmatic and university partnerships as well as potentially supervising an intern. The Division Manager reports to PGP’s Regional Manager, New Jersey.

In the programmatic aspects of the role, the Division Manager will collaborate and coordinate with multiple types of partners, including higher education programs, and reentry providers, as well as prisons and jails. The Division Manager is responsible for determining the tutoring needs of program partners and participating students, developing semester program plans and collaboration agreements, and managing volunteer tutors. The position is also tasked with monitoring the quality and evaluation of the tutoring services provided, and troubleshooting issues of attendance, engagement, and academic progress in collaboration with program partners, PGP staff, tutors, or students. 

The Division Manager is responsible for maintaining relationships with university partners where many volunteers are enrolled, in order to recruit volunteers and grow the PGP’s presence across the New Jersey region.  This includes building campus-based student groups, supporting and collaborating with campus leaders, and establishing connections with professors and university departments at various universities in New Jersey. 

The role is hybrid, with a combination of work-from-home days, meeting days in the community or at partner sites, and in-office days. Candidates must be based in the state of New Jersey with the ability and willingness to travel to Princeton, NJ 1-2 times weekly.
