We need coaches at Virginia Avenue Charlotte DeHart Elementary M/W 3:00 - 4:30 PM starting September 6. We provide all the training, supplies, and support for the season. You give the time and talent. The teams have biweekly meetings that last for 90 minutes and continue for a duration of 10 weeks.

Girls on the Run coaches are trained volunteers who lead a team of participants through a season of powerful and fun lessons. You do not need to be a runner; you simply need to have the desire to support and encourage the next generation. Coaches receive all the tools and support they need and find they get as much out of coaching as they give.
