Volunteer during COVID-19

Welcome to our By The Hand Club For Kids Volunteer page. Our need for volunteers in this season is constant, and we appreciate your support as part of the solution for our students and families.


Helping children who live in under-resourced neighborhoods have abundant life.


By The Hand is a Christ-centered, after-school program that takes kids by the hand and walks with them from kindergarten through college, loving and nurturing them—mind, body and soul.

By The Hand began in 2001 with 16 children from Cabrini-Green. Since then, we have witnessed transformation within the lives of our kids—and as an organization. Thanks to the many people who help make The Power of One possible, we now serve nearly 1,600 kids from Cabrini-Green, Altgeld-Murray, Austin and Englewood, with property in North Austin to begin serving there.
