Sing for Hope (SFH) transforms and uplifts individuals and communities by mobilizing artists in volunteer service, bringing the power of the arts to those who need it most. Our programs include collaborative concerts for hospital patients, after-school arts classes for NYC youth, and our flagship initiative, The Sing for Hope Pianos.

SFH Project Leaders make it possible for us to bring to life our mission of "art for all." By leading Sing for Hope's programming at hospitals, veterans centers, community organizations and more, Project Leaders provide a critical link between our Volunteer Artists (VAs) and on-site staff at partner organizations, and ensure high-quality experiences for all involved. Project Leaders are vital to Sing for Hope's ability to bring the arts to as many New Yorkers as possible.

As a Project Leader we ask you to:

  • Collaborate with Sing for Hope staff to plan program content for upcoming sessions
  • Coordinate Sing for Hope programs at our partner sites, welcome and guide Volunteer Artists, and set a warm and positive tone throughout each program
  • Serve as point of contact for VAs and site staff during programs, problem-solving as necessary
  • Communicate with Sing for Hope as needed during and following programs
  • Report back by sharing photos, quotes, and metrics with Sing for Hope staff via online surveys/email

As a Project Leader, you will:

  • Commit to a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer service a month for 6 months
  • Complete the SFH Project Leader Training module (half day workshop) in August or September
  • Attend your pre-determined scheduled programs (SFH programs take place during the daytime, evenings, or on weekends)

As a Project Leader, you'll benefit by:

  • Gaining invaluable, on-the-ground leadership experience
  • Building your resume
  • Meeting an amazing array of terrific Volunteer Artists
  • Receiving ongoing feedback, support, and professional development
  • Helping uplift individuals and communities


  • Must be 18 or older
  • Strong public speaking, facilitation, and communication skills
  • Personable, flexible, proactive, and comfortable solving problems as needed
  • Basic technology skills (ie photography on camera or smartphone, email, online survey)
  • Artistic ability is a plus, but not required
  • Background check as required by partner organizations

"Being a Sing for Hope Project Leader gives the chance to offer kindness and love to those in circumstances that are often beyond our realm of understanding. It's a great responsibility, but an even greater privilege. I discovered almost immediately that I was able to dig much deeper into myself than I thought was possible. I discovered a kind of selfless love inside myself, a kindness that I didn't know I had. Being a Project Leader is a gift." - Abby Powell, Sing for Hope Project Leader
