Girls on the Run


Many thanks to all our GOTR 5k 2018 participants, volunteers and sponsors!


We would love to host a team at your school. As one of only three afterschool programs recently recognized as a top research-based social emotional learning program in Harvard University’s report Navigating SEL from the Inside Out, we want to make sure that your girls have an opportunity to participate in our transformative program. We would welcome the opportunity to set up an appointment to tell you more about the program and answer any questions you may have and will follow-up by phone next week to schedule a time for us to connect.  In the meantime, please visit for more information (site application) or contact Tremanisha Taylor, Council Director to learn more about how you can bring this transformative program to your school.  

Make a difference - apply to volunteer for a GOTR location!
