Prosecutor Impact (PI), a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks, was founded in 2016 by Adam Foss, a former Assistant District Attorney in the Juvenile Division of the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office (SCDAO) in Boston, MA on the premise that expanding the knowledge, tools, and resources of prosecutors is the most efficient and impactful way to address the crises of mass incarceration in America.
To do this, PI partners with District Attorney’s and their offices around the country to provide targeted training and technical assistance intended to help front-line practitioners reimagine their role as prosecutors and their relationship to their communities. PI seeks to encourage a more creative, empathetic, and cost-effective approach to prosecution and ultimately to facilitate a fundamental rethinking of prosecutor training and practice in the United States.
As an organization, PI is in its start-up stage. Our work to influence prosecution across the country is up and running and it’s now time to build the organizational structure and processes to support our growth and stabilization. A team of partners have been working to establish the organization. The Executive Assistant, who will be the second staff member, will provide high-level administrative support to the Executive Director by managing his schedule and travel, triaging requests and responding on behalf of the Executive Director, conducting research, preparing briefings, handling information requests and performing administrative functions including preparing correspondence, arranging calls and scheduling travel for the PI team. The Assistant will work with the team and other stakeholders.
The Assistant is a key point of contact as the ED travels significantly and will be responsible for helping to keep things moving smoothly at all levels. This is an entrepreneurial organization with an innovative approach. As such, the Assistant must be flexible, proactive and strategic. This will initially be a work from home position and the Assistant will help to establish the administrative resources and infrastructure needed to move everything forward.
The physical demands described here are representative of those for this position. Reasonable accommodations will be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the functions.
Work is performed in the employee’s home office and also requires periodic travel both locally and nationally.
