The Lighthouse Institute (LI) is strongly committed to eliminating the disproportionate harms inflicted upon marginalized individuals – including women, people of color, and members of the LGBTQI+ community. To truly achieve our mission, we firmly believe that diverse perspectives must be represented in all aspects of our work. Our team also values experiential expertise that comes from lived experience in recovery and from legal system involvement. Therefore, we encourage applicants from underrepresented communities and applicants with lived experience to apply for this position.

Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for jobs unless they believe they meet every one of the qualifications as described in a job description. We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to think broadly about your background and qualifications for the role.

Note: A criminal background check will be completed for finalists for this position. Prior criminal conviction(s) may not disqualify an applicant from this position. We value having a variety of perspectives within our team. We encourage individuals who may have nontraditional experiences to apply.

Applications reviewed upon receipt. For priority consideration, please apply by Tuesday, October 24.
