Girls on the Run Coaches Needed

We are looking for coaches to coach Girls on the Run (GOTR) for fall 2017. It is an amazing program for 3rd and 4th grade girls! Our current PWS coaches are moving on to McKelvie.  Not only is this program rewarding for the girls, it is rewarding for the coaches.

A GOTR coach is a volunteer position that facilitates and supports the GOTR curriculum. The position requires approximately 2-4 hours per week for 10 weeks with the additional commitment of a one-time new coach training.  Coaches do not need to be runners.  They must be willing to lead with an open heart and assume positive intent.

​Please help us spread the word to ensure that we are able to host a fall team at PWS! Contact betsy.cissel@girlsontherun.org with any questions!
