Team Adelaide Volunteer Opportunity:
Team Adelaide is a great way to get involved with Girls on the Run-DC if you want to work with a team of girls, but cannot make the full Coaching commitment. You get to experience the program firsthand, feel a sense of accomplishment that you have made a difference in the lives of girls, and have a ton of fun with your team of Coaches and incredible girls!
Team Adelaide is a group of volunteers who will conduct 2 visits to one team during the season. The first visit will be in the first 2-4 weeks of the season so the volunteer can meet the Coaches and the girls. The second visit will be scheduled between weeks 6-9 of the season. During that visit, Team Adelaide volunteers will complete a short, informal site evaluation checklist. The site visits will help GOTR-DC ensure uniformity of program delivery and quality, and allow us to offer feedback to Coaches and teams.
This position entails approximately 2 hours per month. Team Adelaide members are required to attend a 90 minute in-person training and are encouraged to participate in the end of season 5K at Freedom Plaza. A Team Adelaide member serves as a role model and mentor, provides support to GOTR-DC Coaches, and understands and believes in the mission of the organization.
