We create opportunities for you to impact the life of a kid in need.

The CoachArt Model

Our app and our programs connect kids affected by chronic illness to a community of support that includes volunteers, donors, and those who spread the word.


Most kids affected by serious illness like Erick are isolated at home.

A sepsis diagnosis at a young age has caused Erick to miss out on opportunities other kids had. His mom was thrilled to discover CoachArt and she enrolled him on the CoachArt Connect app seeking volunteer coaches in art, music, sports, or writing.

Is your child affected by a serious illness?

So we built an app to enable volunteers like Sirena to coach those kids online.

With the CoachArt Connect app, any volunteer can find a child who wants to learn an art or athletic skill from them and propose a schedule to the parent, which is how Sirena met Erick.

Will you share a skill with a CoachArt kid?

They just need donors like you to fund the lesson materials each month.

Your $18 monthly donation as an Impact Investor funds 1 month of materials — such as paint and brushes for Erick and Sirena’s painting lessons!

Will you donate $18 per month? We’ll tell you which kid’s lessons you made possible.
