Review for Coachart Org, Los Angeles, CA, USA
CoachArt is a perfect blend of my passion for art and my desire to help patients with chronic illnesses - I started as a volunteer in October 2010 because I truly believed in their mission to improve lives by engaging the community and taking a holistic approach. The organization recognizes the importance of the arts and athletics as a means for the chronically ill youth to take their mind off of their debilitating illness. I was lucky enough to witness some of the activities we introduced the kids to turned into real passions and some mentor-youth relationships deepen over the years. The gratitude in the CoachArt parents' eyes and the kids' excitement confirmed that this was a meaningful way to improve the lives of these families. Yet the CoachArt families are not the only ones benefiting from this organization: the mentors unanimously report that their time mentoring CoachArt youth has been rewarding, eye-opening, and extremely special. What a wonderful organization that benefits every individual involved!
