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

CoachArt matches kids impacted by chronic illness with volunteers like YOU who can teach them an art or athletic skill for 8 one-hour lessons.

We have a new online tool for you to suggest the lesson times that work for YOU and the family selects which of those times work for them.

The tool is called CoachArt Connect and it allows you to:
- complete your online training and background check
- see a map of the kids on the CoachArt Waitlist and what they want to learn
- send a text message to the parents, through the platform, with your scheduling options

Your local Program Manager for Northridge and the surrounding areas is Lizzie -- click the red "I want to help!" button to let her know you're interested or to ask any questions.

Mission Statement

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


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.
