What We Do

Sesame Workshop is an independent nonprofit on a mission to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.

Generations of kids have grown up watching Sesame Street, but we’re much more than a beloved television show. From timely research, to classroom curricula, to large-scale social impact projects, you can find us everywhere kids and families learn and play.

COVID-19 is devastating India. Our Critical Needs Response Fund helps us support families in crisis across the country. Click here to help.
