A Brief Job Description:

Partners in Restorative Initiatives (PiRI) is a community of social justice practitioners in Rochester, NY who are passionate about Restorative Practices. Since 1998, PiRI has been supporting schools, communities, workplaces, and the court system in building relationships, strengthening community, and supporting healing in cases of wrongdoing and harm. Rooted in indigenous peacemaking traditions, PiRI serves to restore humanity and dignity to our relationships, structures, and systems.

As a restorative nonprofit organization, the PiRI community is central to all that we do. We listen to all members of our community and consider their counsel in our decision making. We are careful to consider the impact of organizational structure and decision making on all. And, when we recognize harm within our community, we seek to repair and learn from that harm.

Co-Executive Director, Strategy and Operations

After several months of study, PiRI is moving our leadership structure to a Co-Executive Director model. We have explored the qualities of a truly restorative organization as a community. We believe the work we have done in reflecting on our leadership and organizational structure will be an asset as we support other organizations in building community and becoming more restorative.

The Co-Executive Director, Strategy and Operations, along with the Co-Executive Director, Equity and Programming, are the co-chief executive officers of Partners in Restorative Initiatives. The Co-Executive Directors report to the Board of Directors and, in conjunction with the Board, are responsible for the organization’s consistent achievement of its mission, programmatic goals, and financial sustainability.


  • A leader who will support the organization’s journey as a restorative agency, prioritizing equity and social justice in all we do
  • A leader who believes in shared leadership within an organization and seeks to hear the voices of all community members in decision making
  • A leader with management experience, particularly in the areas of strategic planning, personnel management, and fundraising
  • Familiarity with the philosophy and implementation of Restorative Practices in schools, communities, and restorative justice environments
  • Bachelor’s degree, preferably a Master’s degree, in a relevant field, or its equivalent training and lived and work experience
