Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run


Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using fun, experience-based curricula that creatively integrates running. It is a physical activity-based positive youth development (PYD) program designed to enhance third – eighth grade girls social, psychological, and physical skills and behaviors to successfully navigate life experiences. The 10-week program’s intentional curriculum places an emphasis on the development of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution in young girls. Trained, caring, and qualified coaches deliver the life skills curriculum during out-of-school times by guiding small teams of girls through twice-a-week lessons that promote social-emotional learning concurrently with physical activity. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and completing a celebratory, non-competitive 5K event.
