GOTR Coach

Coaching a Girls on the Run program is the most rewarding way to get involved with Girls on the Run serving Dubois County. Volunteer Coaches serve as role models and mentors for the girls who participate in GOTR programs.

At each program location, 2 female coaches facilitate the GOTR curriculum, twice a week for approximately 90 minutes to a team of approximately 15 girls. Coaches are not required to be runners, they simply must be passionate about the mission of Girls on the Run, committed to working with a group of girls throughout the 10 week season and able to bring energy and joy to each practice.

More information on coach requirements can be found in the Coach Application.
