The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison (the Alliance) is dedicated to the expansion of quality higher education in prison, empowering students in prison and after release, and shaping public discussion about education and incarceration. The Alliance is a membership-driven network and is fiscally sponsored by Community Partners, which provides a full range of human resources, legal/contracts and financial services, as well as advising, training, and networking opportunities.
The Communication and Community Engagement Coordinator will work in close collaboration with the Alliance’s Director and/or Communications Director and other senior staff and consultants to support the Alliance’s efforts to build the higher education in prison community, specifically through special events and convenings, public communication and messaging and working with volunteers. Applicants should be experienced in network building, volunteer and community engagement on a national level and with a non-profit network. Applicants should have expertise managing and creating content for multiple types of communication platforms. Additionally, applicants should be a creative, thoughtful and collaborative colleague, and be in strong alignment with the social, racial and education equity mission of the Alliance.
The Alliance’s main office is located in Denver, CO and the Communication and Community Engagement Coordinator will work on-site with minimal travel required.
