Join the Potomac ES Girls on the Run team as a Coach on Wednesdays and/or Fridays from 8:00-9:15am!! YOU can unleash the strength, bravery, and limitless potential of girls right here in Montgomery County!

Girls on the Run of Montgomery County is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The Volunteer Coach position is open to adults 18 years and older looking to lead lessons out of the Girls on the Run curriculum to facilitate the practices.

Girls on the Run offers before and after school programs for 3rd through 8th grade girls that promote healthy choices and inspires physical activity. Girls meet twice each week during the season (March 12-May 25th). The weekly lessons prepare the girls physically for a non-competitive 5K (3.1 mile) run held on May 20th at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, and mentally for various life issues pre-teen girls typically face.

Volunteers must commit to attending at least one practice per week for the duration of the season.

Please visit our website for descriptions of these and other volunteer opportunities or contact us directly for more information

Coaches must complete an online registration, background check, online training (1 hour), and in-person training (4 hours). Volunteers do not need to be runners, just willing to serve as a role model for their team. Volunteer assignments are subject to availability, scheduling, and need.
