School-Based Weekday Programming

Teens Run DC programming meets twice per week at each of our partner school sites. Led by our fantastic team of Coaches, school programming includes Lunch Clubs and an After-School Running Program.


Lunch Clubs

Students attend TRDC programming during lunch time twice a week at their school. Lunch club sessions are based on TRDC’s own 30-week curriculum based on social and emotional learning (SEL) competencies, including Relationship Skills, Self-Management, Self-Awareness, and Goal-Setting. Lunch clubs also allow for informal team-building time during which students can get to know one another, and their Coaches, better.

After-School Running Program

During our hour-long after-school running club sessions, TRDC Coaches follow TRDC’s 30-week SEL curriculum, discussing the same SEL competencies from Lunch Club but intertwined with running and physical activity. Students track their progress from season to season and participate in community-wide TRDC races throughout the academic year.
