Who Qualifies for CoachArt Programs
CoachArt children have chronic, physical illnesses and conditions that require ongoing treatment. These are children living with arthritis, cancer, cerebral palsy, diabetes, heart disease, HIV, kidney failure, Spina Bifida, craniofacial anomalies and various orthopedic disabilities, among other conditions.
All chronically ill children who participate in our program receive a medical consent from their doctor before participating in any CoachArt lesson so that we can be aware of any special needs or limitations.
What is CoachArt?
Since 2001, CoachArt has filled a void for children battling chronic illnesses by providing arts and athletics programs to more than 10,000 students in Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area. The only qualification for CoachArt programs: children between 5-18 years of age battling chronic illness living in our geographic operational areas. Instruction and coaching are provided free of charge.
Our network of volunteer Coaches provides instruction (either 1:1 in the home, or in a group or workshop format) that accommodates a child’s special needs or physical limitations – and their artistic passions. Perhaps most importantly, CoachArt improves the quality of life for these students – for the entire period the child is battling illness. In addition, CoachArt instructional programs are also free to the siblings of the sick child.
If your child has been diagnosed with a chronic condition, and you live the San Diego area, we invite you to join us for CoachArt’s San Diego Family Day to learn more about CoachArt.
