Coach an in-person team with Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley! Empower the leaders of tomorrow!

Looking for a fun and rewarding volunteer experience? Girls on the Run is the social-emotional program for 3rd-8th grade girls that combines physical activity with lessons that increase confidence, compassion, and critical thinking. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteer coaches who are committed to empowering girls during our Spring 2021 season. Choose between in-person and virtual coaching. We’ll provide you with training, curriculum, and supplies - everything you’ll need to coach a safe, successful season and help the girls in your community activate their limitless potential!


Girls are experiencing social isolation, anxiety, and a lack of physical activity due to the pandemic, and it has become evident that Girls on the Run is fulfilling a critical need. The organization responded swiftly to the needs of girls by adapting its proven programs so it can continue to offer a safe and inclusive space where girls can connect in a meaningful way with their peers, learn coping and stress management strategies, and build their confidence, strength, and self-worth.


The health and safety of our coaches and participants is our top priority. We have modified our spring programs to include these COVID-19 safety measures:

  • Option of in-person or fully virtual teams (with the flexibility for in-person teams to transition to virtual programming, if needed)
  • Limited teams of 6-12 girls to maintain stable cohorts
  • Everyone must wear masks and maintain social distancing
  • Hand sanitizer and space-delineating tools for each team
  • Personal materials (journals, markers) for each participant
  • We will provide training how to successfully facilitate lesson in both virtual and in-person formats

Who can coach? Anyone who is...

  • 18 years or older
  • Interested in being a role model and mentor to girls and living a healthy lifestyle
  • Committed to attending and leading twice-weekly lessons for 8 weeks (90 minutes each for in-person programs; 60 minutes for virtual teams)
  • Available either March 22 through May 23 OR April 19 through June 13


Girls need you now more than ever! This season, we anticipate serving 500 girls across Silicon Valley. Learn more at www.gotrsv.org or contact Program Director Denise Pang at denise@gotrsv.org.
