Become a Girls on the Run or Boys Run I toowú klatseen Coach!

Coaches are mentors, role models, sheroes, heroes, and people who want to build a healthier community.

What does it mean to become a coach?  Coaches don’t need to be runners!  They can be men or women who are positive role models for 3rd-8th graders and are passionate about empowering kids to be their special, unique selves!  Coaches facilitate a set curriculum with 1.5 hour-long lessons 1-2 times per week for 10 weeks after school.

Boys Run I toowú klatseen and Girls on the Run are empowerment programsfor 3rd-8th graders.  Kids participate in running games that teach life lessons about identifying values, working together, and giving back to the community.  The program ends with a fun 5k event to celebrate their work over the 10-week programs!

Girls on the Run coach training:  Saturday, August 26
Boys Run I toowú klatseen coach training: Saturday, September 9th

*The seasons start on September 18 and 19, and end with a celebratory 5K event on December 2nd.
