Coach a virtual team with Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley! Empower our future leaders!

Looking for a fun and rewarding volunteer experience? Girls on the Run is the Harvard-recognized, 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. 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 (virtually and/or in person) 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.


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 leading two 60-minute lessons each week on Zoom
  • Available starting the week of March 22 through May 23


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