  • 3 people are interested

Girls on the Run - DC is a life-changing, positive youth empowerment program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We welcome enthusiastic, dedicated and positive volunteers who are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons to serve as Community Coaches for our Spring 2018 program.

We are recruiting Community Coaches for teams of 8-12 girls in Wards 7&8! Below are details about the volunteer opportunity. If interested, please email carly@gotrdc.org to learn more!

What you will be doing:
Alongside other Coaches, you will deliver our pre-written lessons that cover topics such as self-acceptance, confidence, compassion for others, intentional decision-making, and goal setting to a team of 8-12 girls. Each lesson creatively incorporates running so that girls can work towards their goal of running a 5K at the end of the season.

Location:
Southeast, DC - actual address to be disclosed during application process.

Practice schedule: Varies, 2 weekdays from about 4:30pm-5:45pm.

Dates of the program: Starts the week of March 22nd and ends with the celebratory 5K week beginning on Sunday, May 30th

We have two requirements for our Community Coaches: commit to working with a group of girls for two practices a week throughout the 8-week season and bring energy and joy to each practice!

As a Community Coach, here are a few things to keep in mind:

- All new Community Coaches must attend a training session

- You are committing to volunteer 75-90 minutes, two times per week for 8 weeks, with additional time needed for the 5K.

We hope to get you involved! Please email carly@gotrdc.org to learn more!
