Inspire Greatness. Become a Coach!
Girls on the Run Vermont relies on the contributions of our amazing volunteer coaches to activate our 10-week after-school program. Coaching is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved and while coaches get to experience the incredible transformations of the girls first-hand, it’s the coaches who say they transformed the most!
You don’t need to be a runner or have previous coach experience to inspire greatness. Coaches come from a wide range of backgrounds – teachers and school staff, parents, community members – all with a desire to help the girls gain a stronger sense of identity and teamwork, greater self-acceptance, and build healthier habits. A minimum of two coaches are needed per team and GOTRVT offers several types of coach positions to accommodate everyone’s schedules and availability.
Here is a helpful snapshot of our Coach opportunities at Girls on the Run!
Are you a first-time coach? So you’re pumped about making a difference and becoming a role model for these girls, but have no clue where to begin. No problem, we’ve got you covered! Before you register, determine which site you’d like to coach at by checking our site list to see which local schools participate in our program. If your local school or rec center is NOT on the list, encourage them to sign up by applying online!
Ready to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident?
At GOTR we’re committed to equipping our coaches with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to lead their girls down the path to greatness. This year’s Coach Training, “Inspire Greatness”, will be unlike any other. We are peeling back the layers and starting with you, Coach. This interactive workshop is so much more than “how to facilitate a lesson”. It is designed to help you connect with your own inner girl, so you can better support and guide the transformation of your girls during the season.
