By The Hand Club For Kids™ is a Christ-centered after-school program serving children in four of Chicago’s most under-resourced neighborhoods: Cabrini-Green, Altgeld Gardens, Englewood, and Austin. Volunteers are needed Tuesdays through Thursdays in the afternoon and early evening to help children with their homework, teach enrichment classes, serve in the kitchen and more.

By The Hand is unlike conventional programs. While we emphasize measurable educational goals, our focus is on loving the whole child—which leads us to focus on all aspects of child development. We literally and figuratively take kids By The Hand and walk alongside them from the time they enroll in our program until they’re adults, walking independently with the Lord. We tutor them to academic excellence. We mentor them to their full potential. And we care for them as our own.
