Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast offering fall 2018 coaching opportunities

NEWS RELEASE

Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast is launching their outreach campaign for new coaches to lead programming. Girls on the Run is a physical, activity-based, positive youth development program that teaches key life skills to girls in 3rd through 8th grades to be joyful, healthy, and confident. At each school site, volunteer coaches lead teams of 8-15 girls through research-based curricula that includes lessons on confidence, treating others with care, and contributing to the community. During the ten-week program, girls complete a community service project and become physically and emotionally prepared to participate in a celebratory 5K event.

Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast is currently accepting new coaches to help host teams for the fall 2018 season and provide program opportunities to more girls. Coaches do not need to be runners but have a passion for mentoring future leaders. All volunteer coaches must complete a background check and attend a training session.
