AmeriCorps VISTA with Girls on the Run of the Bay Area

Girls on the Run of the Bay Area is a nonprofit, after-school program building confident, healthy girls in 3-8th grades. Based in San Francisco, our organization serves 2,000 girls each year across 5 Bay Area counties. Our program provides an interactive way to learn about healthy living, such as goal-setting, cooperation, healthy decision-making, and self-respect, while training for a culminating 5k run.

The innovative curriculum teaches girls to listen and open up, while also encouraging a healthy lifestyle. 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.
