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.
