We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run Rhode Island proudly serves Providence, Bristol, Kent, Newport, and Washington counties and Bristol County in Massachusetts.
Meeting twice a week after-school in small teams of 15 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 16-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.
