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 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!
