Do you want to make a difference in the lives of girls in your community? Volunteer with Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia this Fall!
Girls on the Run is a youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. The 10 week curriculum-based program helps girls build skills to be strong, confident, and healthy. As a coach, you'll be trained to guide small teams in practice twice a week. You'll lead your team of girls in valuable lessons and teamwork building each week, while working up to running a 5K at the end of the season.
Coaching a Girls on the Run team is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with GOTR NOVA. Coaching provides a first-hand experience of the program and a sense of accomplishment, knowing that you have made a difference in the lives of the girls on your team.
