Youth Run NOLA Development Associate
Founded by teachers in November 2010, Youth Run NOLA began as a grassroots running club in St. Bernard Parish. Programming has expanded from three partner schools in 2010-2011 to its current 30 partner schools, and the model of teachers running with their own students has maintained. YRNOLA’s School and Community Teams include two initiatives that have existed for the past six years. The founding program initiative includes after-school practices with volunteer teacher-coaches. Twice a week, teacher-coaches and volunteer running buddies host practices featuring workouts and wellness trainings at our partner schools. Once a month, youth gather for a weekend race of 5k, 10k, or half marathon distances hosted by a community partner. YRNOLA participants are split into two groups. Middle School-aged participants are invited to participate in either or both a fall and spring season that includes two weekend races, and a curriculum centered on joy and community. High school-aged participants are invited to join a year-long experience that involves weekly practices, monthly races, half marathon training throughout the winter, and extra-non-running leadership development opportunities. High schoolers are matched with our team of community-member mentors. Through practices, races and the program curriculum, youth develop habits around making positive, healthy choices and building healthy relationships, finding joy and fun in the world, believing in themselves and others, and enduring through challenge. Since its founding in 2010, YRNOLA has been a free opportunity for all young runners and primary serves youth growing up in lower-income neighborhoods in Orleans, St. Bernard, and Jefferson Parishes.
