Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: May 30, 2012, 11:29 PM

Description

Girls on the Run is an after school character development program for girls in grades 3-5 and Girls on Track for girls in grades 6-8. The 12 week, twice a week, program meets for 1 hour and 15 minutes at various locations in Los Angeles. All volunteer coaches are trained, work as part of a team, and use a detailed curriculum.

No running experience or athletic level necessary! Girls on the Run is for every girl, no matter her size, shape, or fitness level -- and this is true for coaches too. Men are welcome as assistant coaches.

As a mentor, coaches guide the girls through lessons in taking good care of herself, being a good friend, and being a positive community member.

Coaches tell us all the time "I wish there was a program like this when I was a girl," and "I got as much out of Girls on the Run as the girls did -- these are messages we all need to remember about taking good care of ourselves."
