The Benefits of Coaching with Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run coaches and girl participant

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.
