SheJumps is a nonprofit organization with a board of directors, a full-time staff of four, and more than 125 volunteers coast to coast. With a limited number of administrative staff, SheJumps relies heavily on the hard work of our volunteers to plan and facilitate our in-person programs. In our last program year we were able to run 129 events thanks to the dedication of our volunteers. Our volunteers help us implement SheJumps banner programs such as Junior Ski Patrol and Get the Girls Out!. These volunteers also create and plan their own regional events to suit the needs of their individual communities. While our staff team leads our national programs such as our Finishing Schools and the Fundraising Climbs, it’s our volunteers who facilitate the majority of SheJumps’ events and provide geographic scale for our organization. We are grateful for their creativity, passion, and drive to serve their communities. 

SheJumps operates nationally, which means we welcome volunteers from all over the country- From Alaska to Maine we have developed an organizational structure to support the diverse needs of each of our 7 regions across the United States. Our regional teams are led by volunteer Regional Directors that oversee volunteers in their geographic region. Regional Coordinators are responsible for managing volunteers in a specific state. Regional Directors and Coordinators work together to oversee and lead our Event Coordinators as they plan and facilitate local events. In turn, our Brand Ambassadors promote our events and the SheJumps brand. We also offer an On-Call Volunteer option for folks that aren't able to commit to a team role, but still want to help out as needed. On-call volunteers play an important role by assisting SheJumps team members with general event support which may include things like event set-up, clean-up, and leading skill stations during larger events. 

SheJumps volunteers are critical to the success of SheJumps, and they gain valuable skills while volunteering. With the help of our staff, volunteers are trained in event management, event promotion, fundraising, communication, team management, equity and justice work, and other valuable professional skills. SheJumps is committed to giving back to our volunteers in the form of leadership and professional development, as well as being part of our inclusive community.

  • Do you have anything if I am not a “rah-rah” girl?

  • Are you a skiing organization for women?
