Volunteers Needed: Girls on the Run
At the heart of Girls on the Run (GOTR)
are amazing volunteers whose commitment and passion change the lives of thousands of girls each year. Our volunteers are dynamic role models dedicated to empowering girls to become healthy and confident young women. Whether you have just a couple of hours a year or per week, we would love to hear from you.
GOTR is currently in need of a GOTR Coach. Coaches do not have to be elite runners. They just have to be over 18, maintain a healthy lifestyle and be committed to improving the lives of girls! New Coaches must complete online and in-person Girls on the Run coach training prior to the season starting. At least one coach per team must be CPR certified (a limited number of complimentary CPR training slots are offered to coaches on specific dates each season). All curriculum and materials are supplied and coaches are provided with a support network and tips along the way.
Young People for Fellowship - Dec 31
is a social justice incubator. They provide life-long social justice leadership training to unlock the potential of young people historically left out of opportunity. They are a national network that centers black, brown, indigenous, disabled, and LGBTQ+ leaders in education, media, politics, business, government, and everywhere.
Volunteer to Be a Poll Worker
Every year, elections in Pennsylvania are made possible by thousands of regular citizens who serve as poll workers. These are the people who do the important work of checking in voters at polling places and setting them up at voting ma-chines. At the end of the night, poll workers deliver the returns to county election officials. We depend on these workers to run fair and secure elections.
Poll workers generally work all day on Election Day, from before the polls open at 7 a.m. until after the polls close at 8 p.m. In addition, they may be asked to attend a training session before the election. They can also watch training videos on the Pennsylvania Department of State website at http://www.VotesPA.com. The good news is that poll workers are paid for their time on Election Day. Some counties also pay poll workers for attending training.
