July’s Girl Heroes

July’s Girl Heroes

Our Amazing Team of Girl Ambassadors

Our July Girl Heroes are our super fun, energetic, smart (the list could go on and on…) team of Youth Ambassadors! One of our favorite new initiatives from last year was the formation of a group of past participants who serve as Youth Ambassadors for Girls on the Run of Puget Sound. The Youth Ambassador program gives both current program participants and alumnae the chance to share their GOTR experience with the wider community while continuing to develop their interpersonal and communication tools.

Last year, Youth Ambassadors represented Girls on the Run through a variety of exciting media and community engagement opportunities. Eighteen Ambassadors shared their Girls on the Run stories for recruitment videos, attended Girls on the Run fundraising events and spoke with supporters, and assisted with yearbook sales at Seahawks training camp. We are grateful to all the Ambassador participants for their willingness to participate in our pilot year and thoughtfully share their experiences with our community!

Do you know a current or past Girls on the Run or Heart & Sole participant who would be a GREAT Ambassador for Girls on the Run? Applications are now open for our 2017-2018 cohort. Visit our webpage at http://girlsrun.org/gotr-youth-ambassador/ for more information.
