Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. STRIDE is a similar program for boys 3rd-5th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the kids being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. We are currently recruiting new coaches for our teams. Teams meet twice a week for 10 weeks after school. Each practice lasts for 75 minutes. We run 2 seasons each year, one in the spring and one in the fall.Coaching these programs is one of the most powerful ways to provide youth in your area with the skills and knowledge they need to meet their fullest potential. visit http://www.gotrdetroit.org/or http://ymcadetroit.org/our-focus/youth-development/swim-sports-play/youth-recreation/stride/
