Our program is unique because we rely on hundreds of community members, at a variety of engagement levels, to lead our initiative and ensure our highest impact on youth. Join our family in creating a healthy, youth-focused community, dedicated to building relationships and reaching goals!


Youth Run NOLA Team Members are crucial to our youth impact. Team members, whether committed for a single race for the the entire season, are trained and responsible to meet our three team member goals.

  1. Create a healthy emotional environment
  2. Ensure a safe physical environment
  3. Support youth skills building


Regardless of ability or commitment level, there is a spot for you in the Youth Run NOLA Family! The Race Day Team includes event and running team members who volunteer monthly on race day. These team members commit to one-off opportunities and generally participate in 3-10 events throughout the year. Our Season Support Team includes dedicated community members who are committed for the season. In addition to leading on race day, many train with our youth after school and build the deepest relationships with the strongest impact.
