Conclusion : 

Conclusion Girls on the Run is a positive experience that promotes higher self-esteem within pre-teen girls. It stands to reason that it will help to reduce the number of low self-esteem issues (such as teen pregnancy, bullying, depression, etc.) in young women who participate. It also helps volunteers see an instant result from their efforts which will hopefully cause them to continue motivating girls they encounter in their everyday lives.
