Girls on the Run Northeast Indiana is looking for coaches for our fall season (Aug 28-Oct 23) and we hope you will consider joining us! Coaches do not have to be runners, they just need to have the desire to mentor the girls in our community! By age 9, 50% of girls have experienced bullying. By age 10, physical activity levels begin to drop and girls' confidence plummets at age 14. We want to stop that. We want to teach our girls how amazing they are so they face challenges armed with confidence and self-awareness and we need your help to do this! We will provide every coach with training and give you a curriculum that will walk you through exactly what to do and say during each lesson, so there is little to no prep work outside of your time with the girls. We will run at the Augusta Hills Learning, Recreation & Community Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 pm starting Tuesday, August 30th. Girls on the Run coaches are:
Trained volunteers who lead small teams through powerful and engaging lessons (GOTR provides all training needed)
Not required to be runners or athletes
Fully prepared and support by GOTR
Available for practice 2x/week for 75 minutes for the 8-week season (no sessions during fall break)
Building confidence, creating healthy habits and deepening social-emotional skills through our evidence-based curriculum
Encouraging and empowering the next generation.
Our coaches are at the heart of what makes Girls on the Run a program unlike any other. At every practice, their encouragement inspires girls to live fearlessly.
Remember: No experience is required! Coaches are provided with all of the training and supplies necessary. Our season ends with a celebration and 5K at Purdue Fort Wayne where all of our sites come together with members in the community to celebrate and achieve the same shared goal together. If you sign up to coach and you have a daughter you'd like to enroll in the program, she will receive a 75% discount in her registration! If you have any questions about our program, its impact or how to get involved, please do not hesitate to reach out: email@example.com
