Recruiting Organization: Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa

Become a Girls on the Run coach today! We welcome enthusiastic, dedicated, and positive volunteers who are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons.

Through safety and physical distancing modifications and creating trauma-sensitive spaces, our team is ready to bring critical social-emotional programming to our girls, at a time when they need it the most.

Coaches do not need to be runners. You just need to be passionate about empowering girls! Our girls need you more than ever!

Timeline

We hold a spring and fall season each year. The Spring 2022 season starts the week of March 28th and ends May 22. At each program site, 3-6 coaches work together to deliver GOTR curriculum to girls in 3rd - 5th/6th grade. Teams meet after school twice each week for eight weeks with each practice being 90 minutes long. While our season is typically 10 weeks, we will be switching to an eight-week season for Spring 2022.
