Girls on Track
Girls on Track
Girls on the Run is the name of our organization, but we have two programs:
- The Girls on the Run Program, an experiential program for 3rd – 5th grade girls
- The Girls on Track Program, uses the Girls on the Run Model, but focuses on issues of importance to 6th – 8th grade girls
The principal philosophies and psychological research for both programs are the same yet the depth of processing the topics varies with the two different curricula. We can go into more targeted and age-appropriate discussion regarding certain topics (eating disorders, tobacco and alcohol use, personal/internet safety and harassment to name a few) with the middle school participants, whereas with the younger girls the discussion remains a bit more vague or may not occur at all.
