Donate your time to help give
girls a brighter future.
Thank you for your interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or facility! Girls on the Run is a character development program for girls, ages 8-12, that uses physical activity as a tool to introduce health lifestyle choices. The focus of the program is on increasing the girls’ self-respect and enhancing their self-esteem and confidence through an experienced based curriculum facilitated by Coach Mentors. We program in the Spring and Fall seasons. The season runs for 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for an hour and 15 minutes each session.
Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee is currently located in 15 sites across Southeast Tennessee. We are eager to expand our programming and reach more girls with our message of joy, healthy and confidence. In order for our program to grow and succeed, we require a strong and active commitment from our local site partners. The following things are required of all sites interested in becoming a Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee location:
If you feel your site can commit to our program expectations, please fill out the form below. Potential sites will be contacted for a site visit before they will receive official designation as a Girls on the Run program site. Sites that we will not be able to accommodate for the current application period will be considered for the following season.
Spring Season - November 30 (program begins in February)
Fall Season - May 1 (program begins in August/September)
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we receive more site applications than we currently have the capacity to serve. Sites able to provide all volunteer coaches at the time of their application will receive priority consideration, as one of our biggest challenges to growth is staffing teams with committed, reliable volunteers. We will review site applications on a rolling basis.
