GOTR Coach

Coaching a Girls on the Run program is the most rewarding way to get involved with Girls on the Run of Charleston. Coaches are the backbone to our program and they first and foremost deliver curriculum about character development and use running to help teach the lessons that develop a girl’s sense of confidence and self esteem. We look for happy, generous, and fun individuals who will be able to commit to the 10 weeks in order to best serve the girls and make this program a life changing opportunity - and you, yourself, will probably grow from the experience as well!

At each program location, 2 female coaches deliver the GOTR curriculum, twice a week for an hour and 30 min to groups of 8-15 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 10 week season and able to bring energy and joy to each practice.

Interested in Coaching?

  • Do you feel a calling to lead a team of young girls to reach their limitless potential?
  • Are you able to commit to the 10 week season?
  • Would you be able to be present for 2 practices/week afterschool? (typically beginning at 3pm)
  • Do the words joyful, healthy, and confident get you motivated?

If you said "yes" to the items above, please email to learn how you could be coach for upcoming seasons. We look forward to hearing from you!
