Girls on the Run NJ East is thrilled to launch our 2023 Ambassadors group to build awareness, excitement and support for our program in Essex, Union, Morris, Mercer and Burlington counties. Ambassadors help ignite our mission and empower more girls in New Jersey! 

What will Ambassadors do?

Use your passion and skills to help Girls on the Run NJ East in ways that fit your interests, such as:

Represent Girls on the Run at community outreach events
Fundraise as a SoleMate
Serve in a 5K volunteer leadership role
Share Girls on the Run news and calls to action via social media
Recruit new coaches 

What are expectations for Ambassadors?

Girls on the Run NJ East asks Ambassadors to make a one-year commitment to the organization, however the role may continue beyond one year if it is a beneficial partnership for both the Ambassador and Girls on the Run NJ East.  

Expectations of Ambassadors include:

Uphold Girls on the Run’s core values
Learn enough about our program to confidently represent Girls on the Run NJ East
Participate in at least 3 out of 4 quarterly meetings each year (a mix of in-person and virtual formats)
Commit to at least 3 specific ways to contribute as an Ambassador each year
Reply to emailed opportunities within 48 hours
Seek opportunities to promote Girls on the Run NJ East in your communities

How will Girls on the Run NJ East prepare, support and recognize Ambassadors?

New Ambassadors will receive a welcome packet and participate in a GOTR orientation session. Girls on the Run NJ East’s staff will provide Ambassadors with information, materials and ongoing support. Quarterly meetings will also help Ambassadors have the knowledge and confidence to fulfill their role. We are excited to celebrate our Ambassadors by listing your names on our website and Gratitude Report, gifting you with a GOTR Ambassador shirt, and other fun surprises throughout the year!

Who can be an Ambassador?

Anyone who is passionate about girls having the opportunity to activate their limitless potential and confidently pursue their dreams can be an Ambassador for Girls on the Run NJ East! We welcome GOTR alumni, current and past coaches, past Board members, current and past parents of GOTR participants – and anyone who wants to get involved in supporting our mission.
