With funding from Portland Parks and Recreation, all coaches at the above locations will receive a $200 stipend as a thanks. Coaches at the above locations can opt-in to receive additional stipends of $500 to reimburse dependent care expenses and/or $100 to reimburse travel expenses.
We know that Girls on the Run is a more inclusive and impactful experience when coaches mirror the participants. To ensure we best represent the communities we serve, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals, people from low-income communities, and those with disabilities are encouraged to apply to coach these teams. To do so, apply via our coach application and indicate that you would like to be placed on a Portland Parks and Recreation funded team.
This project is made possible by funding from the City of Portland through Portland Parks & Recreation’s Community Partnership Program. We hope to expand this opportunity to more teams in future years.
