Description

You are invited to join us for an amazing internship experience that will change many lives, including your own.

Founded in 2001, Soaringwords is a New York City based nonprofit organization. Its mission is to lessen the negative impact of serious illness by embracing hospitalized children, families and staff, encouraging positive health and healing. Soaringwords provides fun, creative and educational activities both in person and online based on positive psychology concepts that enhance well-being. Soaringwords is unique because it is the only organization that motivates ill children and their families to “pay it forward” which fosters altruism, reciprocity, empathy, well-being and resilience.

Since November of 2012 we have been sharing free monthly Zumba® Fitness classes in pediatric hospitals around the country. The overwhelming positive reaction from every hospitalized child, their Moms and Dads, and all of the hardworking nurses and hospital professionals inspired us to expand this successful initiative to hospitals worldwide.
Hundreds of licensed Zumba® Fitness instructors signed up to lead free monthly classes in pediatric hospitals with Soaringwords activities. At present, we are in more than 60 hospitals and the collaboration is growing rapidly.
