YOU have an art or athletic skill that a kid impacted by chronic illness wants to learn virtually

CoachArt

Art

CoachArt matches kids impacted by chronic illness with volunteers who work with them 1-on-1 to teach them an art or athletic activity.

One of the main hurdles we run into? Volunteers don't think they are skilled enough for a child to want to learn from them.

A CoachArt kid near you wants to learn from you if you can:

  • scramble an egg (cooking lessons!)
  • passed 9th grade English (creative writing lessons!)
  • can make a free throw (basketball lessons!)
We even have a new online platform that makes it incredibly easy to see the CoachArt kids near you and what they want to learn.

Mission Statement

CoachArt’s mission is to create a transformative arts and athletics community for families impacted by childhood chronic illness.

Description

CoachArt is a non-profit organization offering free lessons in the arts and athletics to children impacted by chronic illness, ages 5-18. Our vision is that one day every family impacted by chronic illness will be connected to a community of support and an opportunity to learn and grow together.

We partner with talented volunteers and arts/athletics programs to offer lessons in music, art, yoga, photography, dance, soccer - and more! Our CoachArt team matches each individual child with our volunteers and program partners, who provide 8 week lessons in a shared activity of choice.
