Board Member

Desired skills, perspectives, experiences, and characteristics of new board members

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 Directors. 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.

Annual Time Commitment (including committee meetings, special events, work outside the board, etc.)

Board Terms are for two years with the option to renew for up to three terms.  Meetings are bi-monthly and held virtually.  We host two 5K events in the Greater Charlottesville region (April and November) and ask that our Board members attend these events.  We have several Board Committees that focus on fundraising, outreach, finances and development.  Board members are asked to serve on at least one committee.  These committees will meet in the off-month and may be virtual or in-person.
