Volunteer to provide art workshops for in-hospital patients (Los Angeles)

Host a minimum of 2 two-hour art workshops per Quarter for a total of approximately 4 hours with a fellow volunteer at one of the playrooms at Children's Hospital or Harbor UCLA- Torrance.

The workshops rotate between playrooms and clinics in order to reach various patient populations at the hospital. For admitted patients as well as their visiting siblings, these workshops provide both a stimulating experience and exposure to a new activity. Upon leaving the hospital, many of these patients are eligible to participate in the Outpatient Coaching Program. Our goal is to provide a creative outlet for these children to develop new skills and focus on something other than their illness.

If interesting in volunteering, please contact Becca at becca [at] coachart [dot] org.
