For their community impact project, Girls at Jupiter Elementary School decided to make friendship bracelets, so that their guidance counselor could give them to girls who are having a rough time.
Through a grant from Prime Time Palm Beach County, Inc.*, we are extending GOTR to Prime Time's OST providers, which serve the Title I** school population.
As part of a national organization recognized for our curricula, we offer an outstanding F U N Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and wellness opportunity that will get your girls moving while they explore and learn important life skills.
Our organization may work a bit differently than other ELOs. Please see information below to help you understand our program and how we can work with you.
Afterschool Director and OST Staff: Please read before completing the ELO-OST MOU Agreement
~ The GOTR program length is 16 sessions (a minimum of 8 weeks is required to complete the program), per the specific season dates
~ Specific season dates: As part of Girls on the Run International, we do not offer "rolling" start dates. We work within specific seasons, as follows:
1. Fall Season: Lessons begin in early October and end in December, PRE-REGISTRATION FOR COACHES and GIRLS REQUIRED
2. Winter Season: Lessons begin in early January and end in March, PRE-REGISTRATION FOR COACHES and GIRLS REQUIRED

From a volunteer 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
*Grant made possible with support from Prime Time Palm Beach County, Inc., which receives significant funding from the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, Inc.
