We are seeking Board Trustees

Girls on the Run is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We value the dignity and humanity of all people and are dedicated to being an inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible organization.

Our organization is currently seeking volunteers to serve on our Board of Trustees. Because we serve girls from a wide variety of life experience and backgrounds, it is important to us that our Board of Directors reflects our whole community, therefore we are seeking representation from all parts of our community.

Interested individuals are not required to have any previous board experience. There are no specific educational or professional requirements to join. The goal of this interest form is to start a conversation with you and learn more about how we can partner together in this work.

General Volunteer Opportunities

Our council is seeking volunteers who can support us committee members to support board initiatives, 5K committee members, and one-time volunteers for our 5K.
