The Prison Yoga Project (PYP) is seeking a part time Senior Administrative/ Development Consultant with a depth of non-profit leadership experience in the social or criminal justice field to help the organization in its current stage of growth and overall development. The person would be responsible for setting up management systems to facilitate day-to-day activities, supervise the activities of an administrative assistant and marketing communications contractor, and help to strengthen fundraising particularly as it concerns securing grants. The ideal candidate would be based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

James Fox, the founder and current director, wishes to transition out of the role of E.D. to concentrate on program delivery, and curriculum and instructional materials development in support of existing programs, its 10 U.S. and 2 international chapters, and its 9 U.S. and 3 international affiliate organizations.

The Prison Yoga Project originated at San Quentin Prison in 2002. Since structuring itself as a fiscally sponsored non-profit organization in 2010, Fox has trained more than 1600 teachers in his trauma informed, mindfulness based methodology who are providing yoga classes in 170+ jails, prisons and re-entry programs in 25 states. Additionally he has trained 350 teachers internationally helping to launch programs in Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Mexico. Over the past six years, Yoga A Path for Healing and Recovery, written by Fox, has been sent free of charge to more than 17,000 prisoners who have requested it. In addition to its focus on establishing yoga programs in prisons, PYP advocates for an end to mass incarceration in the U.S., meaningful and innovative rehabilitation programs to reduce recidivism, and restorative justice principles and practices.
