ABOUT US

CoachArt is a nonprofit organization that offers free music, art, and athletic lessons to children & teens who have been impacted by a chronic, physical illness.

CoachArt students receive 8 weekly 1-on-1 lessons from talented volunteers. All volunteers have completed an orientation and passed a background check.

At the end of the 8 weeks, students can sign up to continue those lessons or try something new. All lessons and materials are provided at no cost to volunteers or families. 

Eligible students have chronic, physical conditions that require ongoing treatment, or are the siblings of a child with such conditions, and are between the ages 5 and 18.
