Did you know that volunteering has been shown to increase endorphins and lower stress levels? When you volunteer with Girls on the Run, you can make a difference in the lives of girls in our community. Our girls can't wait to connect with caring and compassionate adults!
Social-emotional learning is the cornerstone of our research-based lessons, designed specifically for the challenges that 3rd-8th grade girls face. With your help, we can support girls in:
- Identifying and processing their emotions
- Standing up for themselves and others
- Leading with open hearts
We recognize the important connection between body and mind. Our program centers around fun and accessible physical activity, ensuring we are strengthening physical — as well as emotional — health.
Through a simple online training course, you will gain access to all the resources you need to lead a small group of 3rd-5th or 6th-8th grade girls in developing important life skills and healthy habits. We follow up our online training with an in-person training workshop, which will make you confident and prepared to work with our girls.
Over the course of 10 weeks, twice a week you will lead your team through fun and interactive lessons. You'll get as much out of the lessons as your girls! The program culminates in a Celebratory 5K Event for our entire Memphis community.
Our dedicated staff will provide everything you need to make a real difference in the lives of girls in our community.
