Girls on the Run of Nebraska

Volunteer Opportunity:
Girls on the Run Coaches -- Omaha Spring 2024 Season
I'm Interested!

It's time to show up for the next generation! Girls on the Run of Nebraska needs dedicated coaches and volunteers across the Omaha-metro area more than ever. See your impact in the faces of our future by mentoring youth in your area. No running or coaching experience needed. All genders welcome.

Not a runner? No problem. Coaching a team is about WAY more than running. It's about teaching young kids valuable life lessons and making a difference in their lives. GOTR provides coaches with all the supplies and easy-to-deliver curriculum so you can be confident to deliver our transformational social-emotional learning program.

Girls on the Run is an innovative after-school program that combines exercise, education and mentoring to promote self-esteem, goal-setting and healthy living in sixth- through sixth-grade girls. Teams meet for 75 minutes twice a week for 8 weeks to play interactive running games and train for a 5K run/walk at the end of the season. Lessons on goal-setting, health, communication and teamwork are incorporated with the physical training, so girls get a well-rounded positive experience in a noncompetitive atmosphere.

The overall time commitment for first-time coaches is about 36 to 40 hours over 16 weeks. That includes:

  • background check
  • 3.5 hours of online training modules;
  • an in-person meeting in February (dates/locations vary),
  • 16 meetings with your team during the season (early March to May 10);
  • CPR/First Aid certification, if required (one coach per site must be certified);
  • and 5K day.

Coaching GOTR is a fun and rewarding short-term opportunity. Learn more about how to bring a team to a school near you or volunteer at an existing site at www.GOTRNebraska.org.
