AWARE recruiting volunteers for youth empowerment programs

With a new season soon approaching for Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies’ (AWARE) youth empowerment programs, Boys Run I toowú klatseen and Girls on the Run, AWARE are seeking coaches.

Coaches work in small groups to deliver the program curriculum, listen, encourage and help prepare their team to walk or run a 5k. Coaches need not be runners; men and women of all ages, shapes, sizes and backgrounds are invited to participate. Coaches must be positive role models who live healthy lifestyles and believe in ending violence in their community through positive youth development and mentorship. All new coaches must attend a full-day training and commit to volunteering one to two afternoons per week after school for 90 minutes throughout the season.

Coach applications are due by Jan. 20. The mandatory new coach training for Girls on the Run is scheduled for Jan. 28, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The Boys Run I toowú klatseen mandatory new coach training is Feb. 4 from 9 a.m-5 p.m. Contact Natalie at AWARE, Inc. by Jan. 20 to learn more and register for the trainings at or 586-4902.
