KEEN is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that provides sports and recreation programs to children and young adults with significant physical and developmental disabilities at no cost to their families. At KEEN sessions, we pair our young people with disabilities—KEEN athletes—one-to-one with volunteers for noncompetitive, individualized play in a group setting. As a volunteer, your job is to help our athletes have fun, and in that process, you’ll help our athletes build self-confidence and self-esteem.
Volunteer Positions Available:
KEEN Coach: You are assigned one athlete, and as a KEEN coach, your job is to help the athlete take part in different sports activities and have a good time. No experience is necessary.
Coach Committee Member: Committee members are responsible for supervising all KEEN program activities during a session as program coordinators, conducting orientation for the new volunteers, helping new volunteer coaches work with their athletes, and helping set up before and after a session.
KEEN programs in Virginia take place on select weekends throughout the school year, September-June, at several sites in Fairfax County: Irving Middle School in Springfield, Kilmer Center School in Vienna, and Bowl America in Fairfax.
Please contact Laura Nowlin, KEEN VA program manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and get involved.

At the young center we train volunteers to act as Volunteer Child Advocates for detained immigrant children. Volunteers meet regularly with a child in detention to form a connection and get to know their story. Volunteers then collaborate directly with attorneys and social workers to determine the best interests of the children and to advocate for those interests.

Coach with Girls on the Run - Role Models Needed!
Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is looking for coaches across our area for our Fall 2023 Season!
Lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong, confident, and healthy! Girls on the Run is a youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade that creatively integrates running. Teams of volunteer coaches are trained to facilitate our easy-to-follow curriculum with small groups of girls twice a week over the course of 10 weeks.
You don't need to be a runner or a competitive athlete to coach! Successful coaches only need to serve as role models for girls by showing up prepared and on time, by listening attentively, and by demonstrating a positive attitude! Coaches are required to commit to 2-3 hours per week for the 10-week season, with additional time required for Coach Training and the GOTR 5K race. Practice schedules will vary based on team. GOTR’s Fall 2023 Season starts the week of September 11th and ends on November 20, 2023.
We have program sites at over 110 schools and community centers in Northern Virginia - so we can certainly find a location that works for you to volunteer!
You can register to coach at the following link - https://www.pinwheel.us/volunteer/index/RGGTKYTLN3S70HK
If coaching is too much of a time commitment, we encourage you to consider registering to be a substitute coach. Our sub coaches are very important as they allow practices to continue when conflicts come up with a coach’s schedule. The role also offers more flexibility as support is provided on an as-needed basis during the season.

"I am so thankful that this program exists in Northern Virginia. Every year I coach it just gets better and better and we are more equipped to make an impact on the lives of these girls!" -- GOTR NOVA Coach
