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 provide 1-on-1 introductions to arts and athletics hobbies.

You can help an Alameda-area kid shed the label of "sick kid" and try on a new label as an artist or an athlete.

And our new platform, CoachArt Connect, makes it easy to do your training/background check, see a map of the CoachArt kids and what they want to learn, and schedule a match with the parents, all online.

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.
