Volunteer as a Junior Coach
Volunteering as a Junior Coach is an extremely rewarding way to volunteer with Girls on the Run as an Alumni. As a coach, you’ll help lead a team through the Girls on the Run-developed curriculum, stretching and running activities, and training for the end-of-season 5K. Serve as a role model for girls by showing up prepared and on time, listening attentively, and by demonstrating a positive attitude!
This position works closely with the Girls on the Run staff and requires a commitment of 2-3 hours per week for the 10 week season, with additional time required for the GOTR 5K race at the end of the season.
The minimum age to volunteer as a Junior Coach is 16 years old. Volunteers between the age of 18 and up are able to serve as Assistant Coaches. Head Coaches must be 21 years old or older.
