Our school program is where we partner with schools and collaborate with dedicated teachers and to seamlessly integrate the Youth Run NOLA experience after-school. Here, students come together to form dynamic teams, embarking on a journey of training, goal setting, youth leadership and growth each week. Our interactive and engaging curriculum serves as their guide, teaching valuable life skills and fostering a love for active living.
A highlight of the School Program are the monthly events, where participants join forces with the larger program at community races. This collective spirit propels them towards success and forms a powerful sense of community.
If your youth attends one of our partnered schools and you’re interested in them joining the team reach out to us or their coaches at the school.
Join us every Saturday at 8:30 AM for an exhilarating experience at our Park Program, hosted across three vibrant locations in the city. Our program sites include Joe Brown Park in the east, City Park in Mid City, and the Westbank team in Gretna.
Led by dedicated volunteer coaches and running buddies, our practices are designed to deliver an interactive and engaging curriculum. As your youth participates, they not only enjoy the thrill of running but also acquire essential life skills and forge meaningful connections within their communities.
At Youth Run NOLA's Park Program, every Saturday becomes an opportunity for your youth to grow, learn, and thrive. Embrace the power of running, camaraderie, and skill-building in the heart of our city's most dynamic parks with the most fun community in town!
