Girls on the Run of the Bay Area is a nonprofit, after-school program building confident, healthy girls in 3-8th grades. Our organization serves 2,000 girls each year across 5 Bay Area counties. The Girls on the Run program provides an interactive way to learn about healthy living, which includes lessons on important topics such as goal-setting, cooperation, healthy decision-making, and self-respect, while training for a culminating 5k run/walk distance. The innovative curriculum teaches girls to listen and open up, while also encouraging them to commit to a healthy lifestyle and harness the inner strength that they possess. Our important mission is accomplished by giving girls the tools to make positive choices for a healthy body and mind, while reducing the many risks they face today.
Girls on the Run believes that all girls and communities should have access to our programs. We strive to eliminate barriers to participation, be intentional about staff and volunteer diversity, and to promote a culture of inclusion across the organization.

You will obtain marketing skills, learn more about project management, understand the workings of a fast-paced non-profit organization, gain knowledge of talent acquisition, and build your network of professional connections! This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to professionally develop within a variety of areas, including marketing, operations, recruitment, project management, etc. We are looking for a self-starter who is mission-driven and has demonstrated leadership skills!
