About Us

Sesame Workshop is a global impact nonprofit organization with a mission to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.

We are educators. Creators. Researchers. Moms. Dads. Caregivers. Friends. We are a community of 400+ people (plus some amazing partners!) who are passionate about one thing: helping children.

We reach children in their earliest years, when we know we can have the biggest impact. And we’re present in more than 150 countries, providing over 150 million children with access to life-changing early education, critical health lessons, helpful tools for tough situations, and joy — lots of joy.
