Girls on the Run is an after school program that educates and builds confidence in girls in the 3rd-8th grades. Our program uniquely combines physical activity with intentionally designed lessons that encourage mental, social, and emotional development.

Girls need us now more than ever! This season, we anticipate serving 700 girls at approximately 68 teams throughout the Bay Area. We are actively seeking dedicated, enthusiastic volunteer coaches who are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons during the 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! 

Safety Modifications for Spring 2021: The safety of our participants is a top priority for Girls on the Run. We will continue to support girls in an updated, safe environment:

  • We have limited our team size to 12 girls who will meet at their site twice a week for 8 weeks, with the possibility of transitioning to virtual programming depending on public health directives.
  • We provide training on how to successfully facilitate in a virtual and in-person format.
  • We provide training on our most updated safety plans and procedures

Coach Responsibilities: 

  • Serve as a role model and mentor for the participating girls
  • Prepare & collaborate with other coaches to facilitate twice-weekly lessons
  • Attend both weekly practices (virtual or in-person depending on safety)
  • Communicate with parents/guardians of program participants as needed
  • Participate in the Girls on the Run 5K (virtual or in-person depending on safety)
  • Have fun motivating your girls to become healthy and confident! 

Coach Qualifications: 

  • Interest in inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident! 
  • Able to complete 6 hours of on-demand coach training to prepare you to lead this season
  • Able to dedicate approximately 3-5 hours a week for 8 weeks (from March-May) 
  • Interest in running or any form of exercise, a plus but not required (you do not need to be a runner or a competitive athlete to be a successful coach)!
