WHO WE ARE
In 2007, to meet the needs of Cambridge and greater Boston area girls and families, Title IX Girls was born. Our principal educational program, Whole Girl Workout got the ball rolling. A safe place for girls to learn how to use words and not violence to get their needs met, determine safe and unsafe situations, get support and avoid isolation, understand emotions and cope, respond and not act impulsively. Naturally. Women would coach girls ages 9 to 15, families would have access to educational information, resources and referrals for adjunct psychological services and scholarships available to girls who receive free lunch at school. Definitely.
As a result of demand, we’ve since launched the Whole Women’s Workout for Moms over 40, offer running clinics for youth serving agencies, guest lecture on the university level and offer psycho-educational groups and workshops for parents and middle school students.
Title IX Girls Running Club isn’t just for girls. We invite everyone to share their knowledge, talent and expertise with the organization to improve the health of girls, families and community.
There’s still plenty of work to do and room for everyone to join us. For specifics, email us.
