Coaches are the backbone of the Girls On The Run organization. Volunteer coaching requires a commitment of both time and energy, but it is an extremely rewarding experience as you become an active role model to an amazing group of young girls. Outlined below are details for each of our coaching opportunities.
The Head Coach is a volunteer position that works with a team of coaches to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants. This position entails approximately 4 hours per week (see below) for a 10-week commitment.
The Assistant Coach supports the Head Coach at a Girls on the Run program site while serving as a role model and mentor for program participants. The position entails approximately 1.5-3 hours per week for a 10-week commitment.
The Junior Coach is a volunteer position for high school students to assist the Head and Assistant Coaches at a Girls on the Run program site. The position entails approximately 1.5-3 hours per week for a 10-week commitment.

Coaches may indicate a preference for the site at which they would like to coach. If coaches do not have a preference, we will assign them to a location in need of volunteers.
Each team receives a site allowance of $15 per girl for the season. Coaches must submit all original receipts related to program expenses at the end of the season and will be reimbursed for an amount not to exceed the site allowance.
