Girls on the Run South Louisiana

  • 10 people are interested

Make a difference in the lives of girls in our community.

When you volunteer with Girls on the Run this fall, you can make a difference in the lives of girls in our community. During the stressful time our community is facing, girls need you more than ever. We are thrilled to announce that this fall our research-based curriculum has been adapted to be delivered virtually.

Ready to sign-up? Click here! https://www.girlsontherunsola.org/Coach

Social-emotional learning is the cornerstone of our research-based lessons, designed specifically for the challenges that 3 rd-5 th and 6 th-8 th grade girls face. With your help, we can support girls in:

  • Standing up for themselves and others
  • Being a standbyer instead of a bystander
  • Practicing empathy, inclusion and acceptance

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

Through a simple online training course, you will gain access to all the resources you need to lead a small group of 3 rd-5 th or 6 th-8 th grade girls in developing important life skills and healthy habits. It is our goal to ensure you are comfortable and equipped in supporting girls this fall, regardless of programming method.

For 16 meetings between September and November, you will lead your team through fun and interactive lessons. The safety of our volunteers and girls will remain our priority; therefore, 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 this fall.

Girls in our community are counting on you! Today, you can commit to standing up for girls who need YOU. Register now: https://www.girlsontherunsola.org/Coach or email Michele.Dunbar@girlsontherun.org for more information.

Ready, Set, Coach!

About Girls on the Run South Louisiana

Mission Statement

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.


At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula that includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k event

We believe that every girl is inherently full of power and potential. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who will change the world.
