Manager of Community Corrections Programs
The Manager of Community Corrections Programs is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the Milwaukee County Jail (MCJ) adult education and training programs and the Department of Corrections (DOC) Racine Multi-Craft Core Curriculum High School Equivalency Diploma (MC3 HSED) pilot. Working alongside the MCJ Program Coordinator, the Manager oversees all student and volunteer activities including, but not limited to, recruitment, enrollment, assessment, scheduling, instruction, recordkeeping, and ongoing case-management. While daily tasks are usually carried out by the MCJ Program Coordinator, the Manager may need to assist during high-need times of the year, such as the beginning of a semester.
The Manager is also responsible for the DOC Racine MC3 HSED project and will work closely with the Manager of Adult Education Programs to oversee HSED programming, maintain fidelity of the DOC pilot, ensure that enrolled students have the resources and materials necessary to complete an HSED while incarcerated, and make appropriate referrals to supportive services aligned with specific career pathways. The Manager serves as an intermediary between LSW, DOC, MCJ, WRTP|BIG STEP, state-funded programs, and other partner agencies in the community to conduct outreach and manage referrals according to the guidelines of those relationships. The Manager is also responsible for contributing to the organization-wide collection, management, and analysis of data to be used for reporting and program evaluation.
