Now more than ever, girls need the social and emotional skill-building lessons of Girls on the Run. Social isolation and stressors related to the COVID-19 pandemic may be affecting the girls in your community more than you know.

Will Coaching look different this year due to Covid? Safety is always our first priority. We have created a Covid Health & Safety Plan (visit our website to read the plan), and we are offering virtual or in-person/hybrid practice options. Coaches may coach with an in-person or virtual team.
You don't have to be a runner to be a coach. C oaches simply must be passionate about the mission of Girls on the Run; committed to working with a group of girls once or twice a week for 8 weeks and bring positive energy to each practice.
Will you help us inspire our girls to make positive choices, avoid negative behaviors and become leaders in our community? Girls on the Run will provide a thorough training along with the materials and support needed for a successful season! Included with information and tips on working with and motivating adolescent girls, our training will cover organizational policies, procedures and "sneak- peeks" at various lessons within our curriculum. The program finishes with a celebration event that includes a 5K run/walk.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
