Girls on the Run of the Bay Area Project Coordinator VISTA
Girls on the Run of the Bay Area is a nonprofit after-school program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grades. Our organization serves 2000 girls each year across five 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. We are seeking a Project Coordinator to play a critical role in our capacity to serve more girls. Throughout the course of the year, you will interact remotely with a dynamic, fun group of staff. 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!
