Opportunity Details

Become a Girls on the Run in Sioux Falls/Harrisburg Area

Become a Girls on the Run Volunteer Coach! Coaches lead a group of 12 to 16 girls (3rd through 5th grades) in lessons about self-confidence building, healthy decision-making, teamwork, friendship, and goal-setting. There are always two coaches at each meeting and you do not need to be a runner to be a coach. Programs are held at several Sioux Falls & Harrisburg schools for our Fall 2022 season. Girls meet twice a week after school, around 3:00pm depending on the school, every Tuesday and Thursday (Monday & Wednesday for Anne Sullivan & Discovery) for 1.5 hours. The season lasts 10 weeks, starting early September to mid-November. We do require coaches to commit to one day a week, to help build the connection between the coaches and the girls, and to attend the one-time National Coach Training Session. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A RUNNER TO COACH. To apply, go to our Coach Application. While applying to be a coach, you get to choose what school you would like to be assigned to.  If you are interested in learning more about this fun volunteer opportunity or if you have any questions, please contact Jasmina Nelson, EmBe's Girls on the Run Program Coordinator, at 605-681-8329 or jnelson@embe.org.
