Thanks for your interest in volunteering!

Do you have an artistic or athletic hobby?
Will you teach it to a kid impacted by chronic illness?
Getting matched with a kid is easy (SEE THIS 1-MINUTE VIDEO).
You don’t have to be a professional to share your hobby or skill!

What does a CoachArt volunteer do?

Through our CoachArt Connect app, volunteers are matched with a young person based on similar interests (like painting, basketball, yoga, guitar, and more). The starting commitment is just four 1-hour lessons, either online or in person. CoachArt covers the cost of materials. And don’t worry… our team will help you feel confident and inspired to get your first lesson off the ground!

Start by filling out the volunteer registration below. For more info, see our Volunteer FAQ.
