La Jolla volunteers: Teach your favorite hobby and bring smiles to a child with chronic illness

ORGANIZATION: CoachArt

Virtual 1

CoachArt Goes Virtual!

We’re using online tools to continue to offer free arts and athletics programming to families impacted by chronic illness and to give our community new opportunities to make a difference.

Your talent -- whether it’s singing, painting, playing the guitar -- can make you a hero to a child living with chronic illness.

CoachArt matches talented, passionate individuals like you with children who are eager to learn a new arts or athletics skill.

Just by sharing your hobby 1 hour a week for 4 weeks, you have the power to help a child with chronic illness see themselves as more than a patient, but as an artist, a musician, an athlete! To them, that makes you a hero.

Click "I WANT TO HELP!" to start the conversation with our local Program Manager for the area.
