Coach a team of girls to complete their first 5k! Inspire a girl to be joyful, healthy and confident!

Position: Girls on the Run is recruiting dedicated and enthusiastic coaches for the Fall 2016 season! Volunteer coaches are needed in San Francisco, Contra Costa, Alameda, Marin and San Mateo counties.

Time Commitment: Practices are twice a week for 75 minutes. Prep time takes about two to three hours per week. GOTR will provide you with the materials and program curriculum, and will train you to be an engaging and effective coach.

Important Dates: Volunteers are required to attend one of the following trainings: Saturday August 27th in San Francisco OR Saturday September 10th in Berkeley.

Season start date: September 25th

Spring 2016 5k: December 4th

Qualifications: You do not need to be a runner or a competitive athlete to be a successful coach. You will serve as a role model for girls by showing up prepared and on time, listening attentively, by having a positive demeanor and outlook, and by leading a healthy lifestyle! You will encourage the girls, and coach them on proper stretching, explore emotional issues faced by girls of their age range (3rd-5th grade), and discuss the importance of nutrition and physical activity (don't worry, this will be covered in coach training!).

About Girls on the Run of the Bay Area: Girls on the Run is an after-school running program to educate and build confidence in girls in the 3rd through 5th grades. Our program combines training for a 5K running event with uplifting workouts that encourage emotional, social, mental and physical development. We are not a typical track program as our curriculum contains 20 fun, active lessons dealing with issues such as media images, gossiping, physical health, emotional health, cooperation and community. Our 10-week program meets twice per week at a school site and is taught by three volunteer coaches who give their time and passion to a group of 15 girls. At the end of the training, the girls complete their first ever 5K distance. Girls on the Run of the Bay Area is a local chapter of a national organization, and a registered 501(c)3 non profit. For more information visit our website at www.gotrbayarea.org, or contact us at (415) 863-8942.
