Manager of Violence Prevention Programs

Full-Time 40 hours/Non-Exempt

The Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center (PCRC), a non-profit organization serving San Mateo

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.
