Sitkans Against Family Violence seeks coaches for Boys Run: I Toowú Klatseen program


Sitkans Against Family Violence (SAFV) is seeking coaches for its Boys Run: I toowú klatseen (strength of spirit) program.

This is an after-school empowerment program for boys in grades 3-5 that teaches them healthy relationship and respect skills while training towards a 5-kilometer fun run later this fall. It is modeled after the Girls On The Run program, which meets in the spring.

Coach training takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27 (lunch is provided). The Boys Run program has two teams that will meet from 2:40-4:15 p.m. from September through December in the Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School Gym. Team One meets on Mondays/Wednesdays starting Sept. 21 and Team Two meets on Tuesdays/Thursdays starting Sept. 22.

For more information, contact Lauren Havens at SAFV at 747-3370 or send an email to The coaches application and job description can be found at this link.
