Make a Difference in Your Community: Become a Coach-Mentor for Girls on the Run

You have a tremendous opportunity to help girls understand the true inner power they possess that serves as the critical ‘fuel’ that propels them forward in life. As a volunteer coach for Girls on the Run, you can unleash the strength, bravery, and limitless potential of girls right here in south Louisiana.

Won’t you join us?  

Girls on the Run coaches are as unique as the girls they serve. Just like the girls, many are not runners. They are people just like YOU who take great pride and care in role modeling character, connectedness, and inner strength.

Girls on the Run coaches are truly a reflection of the girls we serve here in our community. By being themselves, they prove that one person can really make a difference. And they have a lot of fun too! Not a runner? Not a problem! Regardless of your running ability, as a coach you will serve as a role model and empower girls to activate their limitless potential. 

Coaches commit to their roles for 10 weeks, leading a group of 15-20 girls for 90-minute practices twice a week after school with the help of coach partners. Want to hear from actual Girls on the Run coaches about this life-changing experience? Click here
