The Center for Constitutional Rights Seeks a Full-Time Program Manager

The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) is a non-profit legal and educational organization dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.

CCR seeks a full-time Program Manager to be responsible for designing and implementing curriculum and programming related to its newly-created Social Justice Institute (SJI), made possible by the generous funding of the Bertha Foundation. The Manager must be extremely organized and detail-oriented, able to efficiently manage multiple tasks and priorities, work well in a team, and demonstrate a commitment to human rights/social justice work.

Since 1987, CCR has trained the next generation of “people’s lawyers” through a variety of internships and fellowships, including its renowned Ella Baker Summer Fellowship Program. In 2012, CCR launched the Social Justice Institute to expand the legacy of the Ella Baker Program and to deepen the Center’s work in training the next generation of movement lawyers. This position offers a talented individual the opportunity to develop, alongside the SJI Director, domestic and international programming for law students and lawyers including writing curriculums, designing national and regional trainings/conferences, coordinating a national mentorship/coaching program, organizing CLE’s and facilitating alumni convenings amongst other programs.

In addition to curriculum and program development, the SJI Program Manager will also work with the SJI Program Director and Program Associate to oversee logistics of several SJI events, including CLEs, workshops and conferences.

The application deadline is September 17, 2013.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and strong consideration will be given to early applicants. No phone calls please.
