The Reentry Specialist will work closely with the program director to serve as point of entry for participants and to services at BSM services, conducting intakes and assessments to identify appropriate referrals; to facilitate regular contact with participants to maximize retention and outcomes; and, to develop and oversee partnerships to expand options for employment, education and deeper civic and community engagement, including a class curriculum and mentoring program in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Prison Society.
The RS will work primarily during normal business hours, but the ideal candidate will be available on occasional weekends and evening hours as needed. Although based in-house with hours overlapping with BSM’s central hospitality services, the RS is also expected to support outreach efforts with potential participants in the community as well as prior to release from the Philadelphia County Prison System and select State Correctional Institutions. The RS is also expected to maintain official visitation status throughout the State and County prison systems.
We are looking for a highly energetic, divergent thinker interested in creating an atmosphere of hospitality, emphasizing self-selection of goals and services, amplifying each participant’s unique definition of personal, community, educational and professional success. Our ideal candidate has a minimum of 3 years of experience and a demonstrated capacity for collaborating with teams and volunteers, with the expectation that responsibilities will increase. Knowledge of the criminal justice system and reentry resources in Philadelphia is strongly preferred; special consideration will be given to persons with expertise and lived experience in order to center the voice of those directly impacted by incarceration and the criminal justice system.
