Girls On The Run South Central AK Is Seeking Volunteer Coaches

Girls On The Run South Central AK is looking for volunteers. We received the following from Shaina Seidner, the program coordinator for GOTR South Central AK.

Girls on the Run Needs Coaches. Volunteer Coaches serve as role models and mentors for the girls who participate in our program. At each program location, coaches deliver the GOTR 10 week curriculum, twice a week for an hour and 15 min to groups of up to 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 season and able to bring energy and joy to each practice. This season begins the week of February 22nd and runs through the first week of May. We would love to have you on our team. 

Interested? Questions? Contact Shaina: coaches@gotrsouthcentralak.org
