Girls on the Run Vermont is now in its 15th year of helping girls reach their limitless potential through an innovative program that fosters self-esteem, confidence and fitness. We are deeply thankful for the overwhelming community support we have received throughout the years.
Applications for new program locations are now being accepted, as we are marking this anniversary by expanding our program by up to 15 new sites. If your school, community center or recreation department would like to offer our program to girls in your community, please contact us today! Applications are being considered on a first come first served basis until January 1, 2015.
Girls on the Run is about a lot more than running. It’s an uplifting 10-12 week afterschool program that helps empower 3rd to 8th grade girls to gain physical, emotional and social well-being. Our fun, creative curriculum incorporates discussions and activities designed specifically to help girls in this age-range honor who they are and is proven to help them navigate the often difficult years leading up to and through middle school.
Anyone can be a volunteer location host/liaison, as well as a coach/mentor: school nurses, guidance counselors, office staff and teachers, as well as recreation department directors, parents and community members. All hosts and coaches have the full support of the GOTRVT staff, along with training, materials and our easy to follow curriculum.
Anyone interested in starting our program in her or his community should contact Program Director Robyn Bashaw via firstname.lastname@example.org or at 802-246-1476. More information can also be found at www.girlsontherunvermont.org.
On behalf of everyone at Girls on the Run, thank you for helping girls in Vermont to grow up healthy and strong, inside and out!
