Sports

Did you know there are kids impacted by chronic illness in Concord who want to learn about YOUR art or athletic hobby?

Patients in childrens' hospitals have access to great extracurricular programs in the hospital. But when they move to outpatient and go home, the social workers worry about the impact of those programs disappearing.

That's where CoachArt comes in -- and where YOU can come in.

The kids sign up with CoachArt and say what they want to learn, t hen we have an online platform where you can:

  • complete your online training
  • see a map of the CoachArt kids in your area and what they want to learn
  • schedule a match directly with the parents on the platform
I'm Melissa, the Program Manager in this area. Ask me any questions!
