Girls on the Run Big Bend - Executive Director

The Girls on the Run® Executive Director (ED) must possess a passion for, and commitment to, improving the lives and opportunities of girls in third through eighth grades. The Girls on the Run program provides a safe and interactive way to learn about healthy living, which includes an introduction and education on important topics such as goal-setting, cooperation, healthy decision-making and self-respect, while training for a 5K event.  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.

The Girls on the Run ED is responsible for the overall implementation of the Girls on the Run mission. The ED reports to the Girls on the Run local Board of Directors. The ED’s job responsibilities include developing and implementing the overall strategy and vision for the Girls on the Run program and all organizational and operational aspects of Girls on the Run including its administration, financial operations, revenue generation, program development and activities, personnel management and strategic planning.
