Manager of Violence Prevention Programs

County, fosters collaborative engagement by bringing people together, facilitating conversation
and building these skills in our community. PCRC seeks an experienced professional in the field
of youth violence prevention to lead this dynamic and growing area of PCRC’s work.
Working under the supervision of the Executive Director, the Manager will design and implement
PCRC’s violence prevention services. PCRC’s approach to violence prevention is based on the
values and core competencies associated with conflict resolution, collaboration, facilitation and
community engagement. Our work is not crisis intervention or case management. We work
within neighborhoods, cultural groups, schools and other communities to support communitybased
efforts to prevent and reduce youth violence through training, leadership development and
collaboration. We facilitate relationship building between community members, law enforcement
and other key stakeholders.
