Volunteer with GOTR

At the heart of Girls on the Run of NOVA are amazing volunteers whose commitment and passion change the lives of thousands of girls each year.


Lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong, confident, 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, star power 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!

Team Adelaide

Team Adelaide members are a vital resource for Girls on the Run, acting as eyes and ears out in the field. Team Adelaide volunteers are assigned specific sites and will visit each site once a season during the site’s scheduled practice time. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see the program up close.
