From a coach...
This is my fourth year coaching GOTR, and every year I am amazed at the growth that I see in our girls as individuals and as a group throughout the season. I have been so astounded at how much the older girls have been learning from the younger girls, and how much everyone looks out for each other. It is so evident when the other coaches and I touch base with the girls throughout the school week, just how much they are implementing the GOTR curriculum in their day to day lives. I've had girls come up to me and tell me how well they have been able to handle their negative thoughts or feelings of frustration with a sibling or a friend. These are imperative life skills that GOTR is teaching this generation of girls. As a coach, I cannot even begin to say how much the curriculum has impacted my life as well. I frequently find myself using the strategies and reflecting on the lessons weekly. I've said it again and again, GOTR is the best program I have ever been a part of. All girls should have the opportunity to be a part of it! -Coach Becky
From some girls...
“I use Girls On The Run at home with my sister. I taught her how bullying is not ok. I told her to tell a teacher if someone’s hurting you or your feelings. We also made cards for kids in the hospital for our community outreach project. I also try to remember to be kind to other people and use kind words.” -Breanna
“This year at Girls On The Run, I learned to be confident! I also learned how to better handle tough problems.” -Ashley
“I used Girls On The Run at home when my brother annoyed me. I took a deep breath and it calmed me down and I did the [GOTR] strategy with him.” -Sienna
“I have learned how to persevere even when things are hard!” -Kenley
We're honored to be a NEW Expanded Learning Opportunity!
Through a grant from Prime Time Palm Beach County, Inc.**, which receives significant funding from the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, Inc.*, we are now able to extend our program to Prime Time's after school network of providers that serve the Title I school*** population of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls.
As a local Council of a national network, we are able to provide you with an outstanding F U N Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and wellness opportunity for your girls.
If you are a Prime Time Out-of-School-Time (OST) provider, we've put together information to help you understand our program and how we can work with you.
Gearing up NOW for January start-up! Our program is 10 weeks... Yes, 10weeks + 5K. In order for girls to participate in the 5K event in March, you must begin in January!
Note to PARENTS: You can only register your girl if the Afterschool Program ("OST") at your school or site has already completed the needed steps to open a program. If you don't have GOTR available as part of your After School program, please ask them to participate through Prime Time. You'll be glad you did!
As a volunteer-driven organization, our two staff members work with site liaisons and coach/mentors who are volunteers for our organization at each site around the county to help them bring Girls on the Run programming to their site.
