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.

Tune in to our Star-Studded Virtual Benefit through June 30—with Michelle Obama, John Legend, John Oliver and more! Click Here.
