Our Mission

Helping Kids Everywhere Grow Smarter, Stronger, and Kinder

Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit on a mission that keeps us focused, passionate, and moving forward.

There are so many ways to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder, and we’re doing everything we can to meet their needs in more than 150 countries. You’ll find us on screens, in classrooms, in communities—everywhere families can use a trusted hand to help little ones reach their full potential. Our unforgettable characters bring joyful learning into children’s lives—and help Sesame Workshop change the world, one smile at a time.

We have always focused on preschool-age children because research shows they have the greatest potential to learn…and because there’s no joy like the joy of a preschooler.

We’d love to keep you posted about all the good things going on at the Workshop.

Thanks for signing up—see you soon!
