About Us


GirlTREK is on a mission to reclaim our streets, disrupt disease, and inspire Black women and girls.

As the largest public health nonprofit for African-American women and girls in the United States with over 1M+ women served, GirlTREK encourages women to use walking as a practical first step to inspire healthy living, families, and communities. As women organize walking teams, they mobilize community members to support advocacy efforts and lead a civil rights-inspired health movement.

Beyond walking, GirlTREK’s active members support local and national policy to increase physical activity through walking, improve access to safe places to walk, protect and reclaim green spaces, and improve the walkability and built environments of 50 high-need communities across the United States.

If you’re passionate about Black women’s health and seeing women and girls live their healthiest, most fulfilled lives, we want you on our team! Join us on the front lines as we pioneer a health movement for African-American women and girls grounded in civil rights history and principles through walking campaigns, community leadership, and health advocacy. And, join a national staff of passionate, creative, collaborative, and smart change agents. Check out our available job opportunities below.
