Project Sunshine provides free educational, recreational, and social programs to children and families facing medical challenges. With a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 15,000 volunteers, we bring programming recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) to 100,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 175 major cities across the United States and in four international locations. Working onsite, our volunteers relieve the anxiety of young patients and, through fun and play, foster in them the courage and coping skills necessary to confront procedures that lie ahead. Project Sunshine volunteers spread sunshine, restoring a crucial sense of normalcy to the pediatric healthcare environment.
