Each season Girls on the Run has a dynamic group of individuals that volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults. Volunteers need not be runners; they just need to be individuals that want to be a positive influence and who are committed to developing and celebrating our youth.

Volunteer Opportunities


  • Be drug and tobacco free
  • Complete a Volunteer Application
  • Pass a criminal background check (if working with girls)
  • Attend Steward of Children training (if working with girls)
  • Have a positive and encouraging attitude

To become a coach, please fill out the online volunteer application or email Melissa Bixby at melissa.bixby@girlsontherun.org if you are interested.

A HUGE thank you goes out to all of our volunteers!! Without these individuals that commit their hearts and time to the girls and the program there would not be a Girls on the Run!
