You Can Be The One

Become a dynamic changemaker. You can change a child’s life–and your own life at the same time.

At By The Hand Club for Kids, we believe in the Power of One—one mentor, one supporter, one leader can change the direction of a child’s life forever. You could be the one. Chicago needs leaders like you, and if you have a heart for God and for kids, then a position at By The Hand is the perfect fit for your career—a job that’s more than just a job, one that changes lives and leaves a lasting legacy.

A job that’s more than just a job–it’s a mission.

God has multiplied the work of By The Hand to include five (soon to be six) locations throughout Chicago and nurtured a generation of thriving young people ready to soar and ready to change the world. Through everything from academic support and spiritual mentoring to creative enrichments and fun activities, you’ll gain experience in teaching, advocacy, social work, youth ministry and community development—all while transforming a child’s future.

Joining our passionate team could be the one thing that changes everything—for the children whose lives you will impact, for the social transformation of the city and for your career path and personal life. Benefits include health insurance, paid vacation, paid holidays, access to free counseling and professional training and development.


As we take a holistic approach to child development, we are also committed to helping our staff develop professionally and personally. We foster a supportive culture of collaborative and positive communication and encourage employees to embrace learning as a lifestyle. And we provide opportunities to advance your career skills and knowledge base.


Our employees are our most valuable assets. Which is why we are committed to providing a comprehensive employee benefits program that helps our employees stay healthy, feel secure and maintain a work/life balance.

We have full-time and some part-time positions with benefits that include:

  • Paid time off
  • Life, health, dental and vision benefits
  • Flexible spending accounts
  • Life and AD&D insurance
  • Disability insurance
  • Retirement savings plan
  • Gas/mileage reimbursement
  • Cell phone stipend

Listen to our employees.
Their own words are better than ours.
