Spring 2022 Program

Join Us This Spring for Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole! 

Girls on the Run provides a space for girls to realize their full potential at many schools and community sites around the country. Our research-based curriculum creatively integrates physical activity into lessons that inspire girls to celebrate her unique self, form meaningful friendships, and learn about her community (read more about the program here).
 
This page outlines the flexibility of the program this season and how we are adapting to meet the needs of the 23 counties we serve in MO and IL. We recognize the unique challenges the global pandemic as placed on our communities, and we remain steadfastly committed to providing a safe, positive, and empowering space during these uncertain times.

Why It Matters: 

We know the pandemic, uncertainties about the future, and the isolation many are facing during social distancing are challenging the mental and physical health of our young people (and their adults). What we also know is that our girls are strong and resilient, and Girls on the Run is here to provide support for your girl in the most quality, accessible way this spring. While this program is not the only answer, we hope to offer your girl an opportunity to connect to her peers, receive the support of mentors, build her self-confidence, and practice skills for navigating life experiences!

For more about why this matters, check out this article from the National Education Association about prioritizing social-emotional learning during COVID-19. 

Programming Options for Spring 2022

We have adapted our program to flex between in-person and virtual lessons, or to be done entirely virtually, while still maintaining the familiarity of our research-based, social-emotional development program. While so much has been cancelled this year or is still uncertain, Girls on the Run will not be cancelled. We are prepared to adjust as needed this season to provide a consistent, positive space for your girl. Whether you join us virtually, in-person, or a combination of both, your girl will be participating with a team and guided through the lessons by trained Girls on the Run coaches.

Due to Covid precautions and the focus on quality programming, in-person team sizes will be limited to 15 participants and virtual team sizes will be limited to 12 participants this season. We encourage sites to host additional teams to accommodate all girls who are interested in participating.
