CoachArt is a non-profit organization offering free lessons in the arts and athletics to patients with chronic illnesses and their siblings, ages 5 – 18. We partner with talented volunteers and art and athletic programs to offer lessons in music, art, yoga, photography, dance, soccer — and more! CoachArt staff match each individual child with an experienced volunteer or program partner, who will provide 10-12 weeks of lessons. Students are also eligible to participate in special events, one day lessons, club sports, and more.
