Target demographics: Under-resourced schools, healthcare facilities and community organizations in New York City.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: - Work on an art project with NYC schoolchildren
- Perform in a hospital for bedridden patients

Programs: Our three volunteer programs are:

• Art U!
Sing for Hope’s Art U! program connects under-resourced youth with their potential to effect positive change through artistic expression. With a team of resident Teaching Artists and visiting Volunteer Artists, Art U! engages students in dynamic arts curricula, empowering young people to transform their lives and world through a broad range of artistic disciplines.

• Healing Arts
Sing for Hope’s Healing Arts program brings live performance to patients, families, visitors, and staff in healthcare facilities. Through public concert series and bedside performances, Volunteer Artists provide uplift and comfort by connecting patients and caregivers to the healing power of art.

• Community Arts
Sing for Hope’s Community Arts program makes the arts accessible to all, enlivening and inspiring communities through arts outreach projects. Through these public art projects and creative workshops, Volunteer Artists bring the arts to underserved communities and encourage individuals to discover the artist within.

Mission:
Sing for Hope transforms underserved communities by mobilizing professional artists in volunteer service programs that bring the power of the arts to those who need it most. Each Sing for Hope program is defined by the volunteer service of professional artists, the needs of the community, and our belief in the transformative power of the arts.
Results:
Each year, Sing for Hope reaches 2,000 New York City public schools students and 2,500 hospital patients. We have reached over 2 million New Yorkers via Sing for Hope's Pop-Up Pianos, an annual public art installation that places pianos on the streets of New York City for all to play and enjoy.
