6th - 8th Grade Program

At Girls on the Run, we believe adolescents bring a lot to the table. We also know that girls at this age often sort through conflicting messages about their worth, their abilities and their value. Our middle school programs help girls develop the skills to tune into their own truths and to unleash their power to live confidently and joyfully. 

Girls on Track

Like Girls on the Run, Girls on Track begins by encouraging girls to examine and better understand who they are and what's important to them. Once they have a deeper awareness of their individual values, they look at the role of teams and healthy relationships. Lastly, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world.

The curriculum allows for more mature processing around certain topics, including eating disorders, internet safety, relationships, cyber-bullying and tobacco and alcohol use. The girls discuss these subjects on an in-depth level and use their personal experiences to shape discussion.

Running is also incorporated into the curriculum. Throughout the program, Girls on Track uses physical activity to inspire and motivate girls, to encourage lifelong health and fitness and to build confidence through accomplishment. At the end of each season, the girls and their running buddies complete the Girls on the Run 5k.

 "Girls on the Run could make any girl fearless, because when you're surrounded by people you trust, respect and care for, nothing can hold you back from being the most beautiful person you have grown to be." – Josie, Grade 6
