Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run

This year, Global Scholars Academy has partnered with Girls on the Run for our students in grades 3-8. Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl can activate her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Girls on the Run meets twice a week in small teams to teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games.

The program’s core values include:

  • Recognizing our power and responsibility to make intentional decisions
  • Embracing our differences and finding strength in our connectedness
  • Expressing joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions
  • Nurturing our physical, emotional and spiritual health
  • Leading with an open heart and assuming positive intentions
  • Standing up for ourselves and each other
