- Empower A Girl
Girls on the Run Napa & Solano is a healthy, empowerment program for young girls. Volunteer life coaches mentor small groups of girls and facilitate experiential learning discussions, out-door play activities, and running or moving after-school throughout Napa & Solano counties.
Girls on the Run Napa & Solano uses the evidence based curricula developed and evaluated by Girls on the Run International. Girls on the Run’s 10 week curriculum carefully and thoughtfully includes Richard Lerner’s 5Cs + 1 – lessons targeting the promotion of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring and contribution to the greater good of society. Specifically, 20 lessons focus on promoting competencies and values related to self-awareness and self-care, selecting healthy social relationships, and empowering girls to have a voice in their personal and community well-being.
The program is offered in the fall and spring of the school year for 10 weeks, twice a week and is facilitated by two volunteer life coaches from the community, school or parent group. Each session (75 mins) focuses on a life-skill topic and follows a lesson plan for consistency/structure that the volunteer life coaches are trained on. Additionally, the girls experience the gift of giving through a community impact project and the power of achievement through a non-competitive 3.1 miles, 5K.
