Girls on the Run of Central New Jersey (GOTRCNJ) needs coaches for its fall season starting in September. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 5th grades.
The ten-week program incorporates running to teach critical life skills, encourage personal development and foster team building and community service. Volunteer coaches utilize a curriculum to engage teams of girls in fun, interactive lessons. Teams meet twice a week for 75 minutes for ten weeks, and the program culminates with all teams participating in a 5k run in November.
Volunteers provide critical leadership and the non-profit organization is currently seeking coaches to facilitate the program with teams of 8 to 20 girls. Coaches do not need to be runners but are required to be a minimum of eighteen years old to serve as an assistant, or twenty-one years old to serve as a head coach. All volunteer coaches must complete a background check and attend a three-hour training session.
