Become A Coach

Girls in Our Community Need YOU More than Ever! By volunteering as a coach, you can make a difference in the lives of girls by strengthening their physical & emotional health, helping them connect with each other & express their joy and optimism!

Social-emotional learning is the cornerstone of our research-based lessons, designed specifically for the challenges that girls face. With your help, we can support girls in:

  • Identifying and processing their emotions
  • Standing up for themselves and others
  • Leading with open hearts

We recognize the important connection between body and mind. Our program centers around fun and accessible physical activity, ensuring we are strengthening physical - as well as emotional - health.

Disruptions and stressors related to COVID-19 have been detrimental to girls in our community:

  • Stressors, uncertainties and fear are more prevalent
  • Physical distancing and lack of connection create feelings of isolation and loneliness
  • Confusion grows without the tools to identify and express emotions

Girls on the Run can strengthen girls’ physical and emotional health. Through a simple online training course, you will gain access to all the resources you need to lead a small group of elementary or middle school girls in developing important life skills and healthy habits. It is our goal to ensure you are comfortable and equipped in supporting girls during these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of 8 weeks, twice a week for 90 minutes, you will lead your team through fun and interactive lessons. The safety of our volunteers and girls will remain our priority; therefore, all classes will be conducted outside and we will prepare you to seamlessly shift to virtual programming should there be a need.

Our dedicated staff will provide everything you need to make a real difference in the lives of girls in our community. Did you know that volunteering has been shown to reduce feelings of social isolation and lower stress levels? At Girls on the Run, we teach girls to stand up for themselves and others, reminding them that they are the authors of their powerful stories. By creating an inclusive and action-oriented environment, we’re empowering the next generation of strong, empathetic women. If you would like to be a part of our movement, and learn what it's like to be called "coach", please join us!
