Program Manager

Girls on the Run of Rio Grande is a local nonprofit organization that operates in agreement with Girls on the Run International (GOTRI) and is dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Our program is currently in Bernalillo and Valencia counties. In our strongest season, we served more than 140 participants in nine sites, who were mentored by approximately 24 volunteer coaches. It is our intention to increase our impact annually.
