CoachArt volunteers tell us they get as much out of the experience as the kids do!

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

Newark kids have told us what they want to learn -- and you don't have to be an expert to teach them!

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.

Your local Program Manager in the Newark area is Melissa -- 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.

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.
