Program Manager of Justice Initiatives, Students Run Philly Style – Jan 31

Posted by Students Run Philly Style on January 10, 2023

Students Run Philly Style (SRPS) is a youth mentoring program that pairs young people in grades 6-12 with volunteer mentors to train together for long-distance races. SRPS’ mentoring relationships, combined with goal-setting and achievement-oriented programming, result in youth graduating from the program with improved grades, a positive outlook on the future, improved goal-setting skills, increased connectedness to the community and reduced incidences of violence.

MileUp is the first Youth Diversion program of its kind that gives young people facing delinquency charges a chance to remain outside of the traditional court system, and holds youth accountable while giving them a chance to build a healthy future.

General Responsibilities 

The Program Manager of Justice Initiatives will implement and report on the MileUp Youth Diversion program; work collaboratively with the SRPS Program Team, MileUp staff and volunteer mentors, and other partners (e.g., Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, Temple University) to ensure the integrity of the program. The Program Manager will supplement SRPS’ research-based mentoring with needs assessments and partner referrals for MileUp participant youth. In addition, the Program Manager will be an integral part of the team that is responsible for strategizing the development of justice initiatives, program improvement, and building and maintaining partnerships that are beneficial to students, volunteer mentors, staff, and the program as a whole.
