Carlos and kiddo 2
Volunteer Carlos used our new online platform to find a nearby CoachArt student for drum lessons!

Right now in Noe Valley, there's a kid impacted by chronic illness who wants to learn an art or athletic hobby from you!

With just 1 hour a week, for 8 weeks, you can make a difference in that student's life by coaching them.

When kids are in childrens' hospitals, they have access to great art rooms, activity wings, and athletic programs. But when they move to outpatient, CoachArt trains YOU to visit their home.

We have a new online platform called CoachArt Connect where you can:
- complete our online training and background check
- see a map of the kids in your area and what they want to learn
- schedule a match directly with the parents

I'm Melissa, your local Program Manager. Let me know any questions!
