At the heart of Girls on the Run are amazing volunteers whose commitment and passion change the lives of thousands of girls each year. Our volunteers are dynamic role models dedicated to empowering girls to become healthy and confident young women. Whether you have just a couple of hours a year, a season or a month to help our cause, we would love to hear from you.
Looking for a great way to support a women's movement, but not ready to register to run? Sign up to volunteer at the Des Moines Women's Half Marathon event and not only will you be helping to create an unforgettable day, you'll also be helping Girls on the Run of Central Iowa!
Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy. Teams of volunteer coaches facilitate our easy to follow curriculum with small groups of girls over the course of 10 weeks. Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls and don’t be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well! Ready to make a difference and encourage girls to realize their full potential? The first step is signing up. Ready, Set, Coach!
We'd love to have you back! It's important that your information is updated each season. Each season coaches need to complete the returning coach application in order to link you to your site correctly in our system. This will also assign you your NEW online returning coach training. There will NOT be an in-person meeting or training for returning coaches.
