Administrative Coordinator, Family Enrichment Center

Staten Island, NY
Part Time
Staten Island Justice Center
Mid Level

THE ORGANIZATION
The Center for Court Innovation is committed to reducing crime and incarceration, addressing violence, supporting survivors, and building communities while strengthening public trust in justice. The Center seeks justice for marginalized groups, bringing an equity lens – particularly a racial and gender equity lens – to its work. For 25 years, the Center has worked to foster justice and equity to create safe, healthy, and thriving communities and, ultimately, to transform the justice system.


The Center is an 800-employee, $100 million nonprofit that accomplishes its vision through three pillars of work: creating and scaling operating programs to test new ideas and solve problems, performing original research to determine what works (and what doesn’t), and providing expert assistance and policy guidance to justice reformers around the world.


Operating Programs
The Center’s operating programs, including the award-winning Red Hook Community Justice Center and Midtown Community Court, test new ideas, solve difficult problems, and attempt to achieve systemic change within the justice system. Our projects include community-based violence prevention programs, alternatives to incarceration, reentry initiatives, and court-based initiatives that reduce the use of unnecessary incarceration and promote positive individual and family change. Through this programming, we have produced tangible results like safer streets, reduced incarceration, and improved neighborhood perceptions of justice.


Research
Researchers at the Center conduct independent evaluations, documenting how government systems work, how neighborhoods function, and how reform efforts change things. We believe in the “action research” model; accordingly, our researchers provide regular feedback on the results of the Center’s own operating programs. The Center has published studies on topics including youth in the sex trade, reentry, gun violence, and drug treatment as an alternative to incarceration. Our researchers have been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals.


Policy & Expert Assistance
The Center provides hands-on, planning and implementation assistance to a wide range of jurisdictions in areas of reform such as problem-solving courts (e.g., community courts, treatment courts, domestic violence courts), tribal justice, reducing incarceration and the use of fines/fees and reducing crime and violence. Our current expert assistance takes many forms, including help with analyzing data, strategic planning and consultation, policy guidance, and hosting site visits to its operating programs in the New York City area.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Staten Island Justice Center (SIJC) offers an array of programming for both youth and adults in Staten Island, focusing on engaging those with current or past justice involvement. SIJC provides judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys with alternative community sentencing options that hold individuals accountable in a way that is meaningful, proportionate, and restorative. The goal is to provide participants with individual and group services that help them to avoid future contact with the justice system and promote swift case resolutions that bolster public confidence in justice. 

The Staten Island Justice Center is seeking an Administrative Coordinator for the Family Enrichment Center (FEC).  Reporting to the FEC Director, the Administrative Coordinator is responsible for contributing to the day-to-day operation of the Family Enrichment Center by working with the FEC Director to develop protocols and procedures for reception as well as tracking and supporting the daily engagement of FEC members. The Administrative Coordinator will also ensure that the FEC space continues to be a safe and welcoming space for all members by regularly maintaining member supplies and updating FEC décor as dictated by community members.  

FECs build on family and community strengths, are guided by the community’s interests, dreams, goals, and desires, and do so without being intrusive or using a case management approach. FECs do not follow a traditional social service delivery approach. They are 100% voluntary, safe spaces that welcome all, and respect each person’s privacy and their ability to decide how, when, and how often to interact with an FEC. 

The Justice Center strongly encourages and seeks applications from women, people of color, LGBTQ community members, as well as individuals with prior contact with the criminal justice system. 


Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Provide reception coverage including answering phone calls and general email inquiries while directing people accordingly, distributing resources to community members, greeting visitors while maintaining protocols and procedures and utilizing a strengths-based, non-judgmental approach; 
  • Oversee supplies expenditure activities and inventory including ordering, tracking inventory,  receiving deliveries and communicating with relevant teams about deliveries, contacting vendors when needed, organizing and restocking supplies and resources in appropriate storage spaces, and communicating with FEC staff around supply needs;
  • Oversee and maintain policies and protocols in collaboration with Operations Manager including but not limited to office management protocol, emergency action plan, in-office workplace health & safety  and update on at least an annual basis or when necessary;
  • Oversee and address technological, facility issues and compliance, maintenance and facilities issues by seeking assistance from SIJC’s Operations Manager;
  • Support day-to-day work of all FEC staff including assisting with organizing staff and community meetings;
  • Assist with community event planning and implementation and supporting specific logistical needs; 
  • Participate in SIJC all-staff meetings, committees, and staff development activities;
  • Attend SIJC/FEC events or community meetings after hours or on weekends; and
  • Perform other activities and duties, as assigned.

Qualifications:  The ideal candidate will either have a Bachelor's Degree or exceptional life experiences that qualify them for the position. A minimum of 2 years of relevant experience in office management or administrative setting using Microsoft programs such as Word, Excel, and Power Point preferred. This position requires an organized and creative individual who is willing to learn office management systems and can work well in a fast-paced environment. Candidate must be able to work in non-hierarchical multi-disciplinary setting and maintain strong relationships and connections using a warm, engaging, and enthusiastic communication style. Candidates must have the ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds in a culturally responsive manner. Strong knowledge of community resources in the North Shore of Staten Island  is a plus. Good judgment, problem-solving ability, and excellent communication, planning, organizational and multitasking abilities are a must for this role.

Position Type:  Part-time, 20 hours scheduled per week. Must be able to work nights or weekends, as needed. Please note, this position requires in-person work. 

Compensation:  The role is hourly, non-exempt. The hourly rate is $30.46 per hour and is commensurate with experience.
