The City of Montpelier is recruiting coaches for our Girls on the Run program. This role is great for those who are interested in leading a program that inspires young girls (grades 3-8) to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle while teaching them important personal skills like teamwork, responsibility, and confidence. Coaches are volunteers who lead a lesson plan that incorporates running and physical activity at age-appropriate levels at twice-weekly meetings. Meeting are held either at Union Elementary School or Main Street Middle School between March and June; the program culminates on June 2nd with a Girls on the Run 5K event in Essex Junction. Each team will have two coaches; a lead coach and an assistant, who will volunteer with and lead coach and take over when he or she is unavailable.

We are currently seeking four volunteers to form two teams; one at Union Elementary (grades 3-5) and one at Main Street Middle School (grades 6-8). Friends and running partners are welcome to participate as a team.
