Looking to get outside and have an impact on girls in our community this spring? Girls on the Run of NJ East’s spring team for middle school girls at the Union High School track is seeking volunteer coaches. No running experience is required! 

Our 8-week season for girls in grades 6-8 runs April 19 through June 12, meeting twice a week with updated health and safety protocols in place to protect all girls and coaches.  

For 20 years, Girls on the Run NJ East has inspired girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. Our proven, physical activity-based, positive youth development program teaches girls the social and emotional skills they need now more than ever.

Coaches will receive online training and all the materials they need to teach the Girls on the Run curriculum in fun, interactive lessons. Teams of 10-15 girls will meet for up to 90 minutes, twice a week, and the season ends with a celebratory 5K for the girls at their practice site. A virtual, community 5K is also scheduled for June 12/13. 

All volunteer coaches must complete a background check and attend an online training session.
