Girls on the Run NYC Coaches are silly, kind, fun, supportive, caring, passionate, interested... and unique! Just like our girls! Today we give our thanks to our 130+ coaches this season, and all of the incredible volunteers who have coached our program and worked to ensure every girl sees her value and knows her limitless potential.
So today, we want to share some quotes from our Coaches with you - let's hear from them on their experience with the Girls on the Run program:
"During the lesson about activating our star power, the activity called for the girls to write on a large sheet of paper ways they can activate their own star power. Amongst the list of activities the girls enjoy participating in, one of our girls wrote 'Choosing to be kind to myself.' As coaches we were incredibly touched by her answer and reminded of her maturity and thoughtfulness."
"GOTR is the highlight of my week! To see the girls in such a natural setting with their friends has allowed me to gain deeper insights of each and every one of them outside of the classroom. I'm also learning how aware they are of the world around them and feel relieved these thoughtfully written lessons help walk them through those experiences."
"As coaches we have observed our dynamic group of girls growing as a team and individually over the past few weeks. Not only does this group of girls love to run, they are kind, encouraging, and deeply supportive of one another. Spending time with our team and as coaches is truly the highlight of our weeks and we are so grateful to be a part of their lives."
