Put Your Talent to Work for a Good Cause


If you have a song in your heart or another performing arts-related talent, you already know how uplifting sharing your talents can be. Sing a Song of Hope (SFH) is looking for artists, writers, poets and singers to put their talents to good use as a volunteer. You don't even have to have a specific talent as long as you have a willingness to change a life, maybe even your own.

What Does SFH Organization Do?

We've found a way to fulfill two needs in New York City: allowing local artists an outlet for expression and brightening the lives of those in the community who need it most. Our great city has an abundance of both in our population, and we've had a lot of success through various outreach programs. We work through a city-wide network of partner sites to put on productions and other means of involvement.

What Kind of Volunteer Opportunities Are Available From SFH?

We offer several ways for anyone who's interested in improving their community to get involved. The easiest way if you don't have the time or the talent is to subscribe to our community or donate money. We're a non-profit charitable organization, so your donation is tax deductible. You don't need to be a performance artist to give you time and talent. We have talented photographers, writers, comics and dancers bringing joy through our program. If you're looking for a hands-on opportunity, here's what we need.

Youth outreach: Art for All is a youth leadership initiative to develop talent among high school students in the community. Our Youth Corps is open to all high school students, and they're involved in coordinating events, running promotional campaigns and community networking.

Healthcare outreach: We put on concerts and other performances at hospitals, nursing homes and treatment centers throughout the city. We even give bedside performances and interactive shows.

Community outreach: Our flagship program is SFH pianos, each of which is customized by local artist. They're placed in parks and other public spaces to encourage interaction and inspire community engagement.

Project Leaders: If you're too shy to perform or prefer to lend us your organizational skills, you can train to become a project leader.

It's been proven time and again that art has the power to heal and inspire. We invite you to become part of a community of artists who want to change the world with song. Get in touch with us to learn more abut how you can get involved. You can also form an SFH program in your community.
