Girls on the Run of Central Iowa

At the heart of Girls on the Run are amazing volunteers whose commitment and passion impact the lives of girls each year.

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) that uses
running as a vehicle to influence positive social, cognitive, physical, emotional and psychological assets
and development. Over the course of the program, girls will: develop and improve competence, feel
confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and
compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to
community and society. Such life skills will prevent unhealthy and risky behaviors, such as physical
inactivity and negative body image, and promote positive health outcomes (e.g., physical, mental, social,
and spiritual health).

Girls on the Run believes that all girls and communities should have access to our programs. We strive to
eliminate barriers to participation, to continue creating programming that engages all communities, to
be intentional about staff and volunteer diversity and to promote a culture of inclusion across the

A Girls on the Run Board Member must possess the time, passion and commitment to improving the
