Each season Girls on the Run has a dynamic group of coaches that volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults. Coaches need not be runners; they just need to be individuals that want to be a positive influence and who are committed to developing and celebrating our youth.
When you sign up to be a GOTR coach you’re signing up to change lives. Our coaches come from a range of backgrounds, professions and levels of experience. One thing they all have in common is a passion for helping girls grow. At GOTR we’re committed to equipping our coaches with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to lead their girls through a transformative season.
During training, which consists of one hour of online learning and five hours of in-person time, you’ll learn about building GOTR style relationships, creating an environment girls can thrive in and developing a climate in which all girls are celebrated for their personal growth. You’ll also get the chance to practice leading a GOTR lesson, meet other coaches, share your expertise and have some fun.
We look forward to seeing you there!
