Our Activity Leads

Little Helping Hands Activity Leads direct each activity with the goal of inspiring the next generation of volunteers and community leaders. They work with our volunteer families to improve our community and to teach our youth about empathy, hard work and service.



“Children are enthusiastic, and I enjoy channeling that enthusiasm towards community service. Our partner organizations get much needed help and we’re building a generation who sees community service as an integral part of life.”



“There is something very special about families doing work together to help others. The staff at Partnerships for Children is wonderful and the work they do supports people who have extraordinarily difficult jobs at Child Protective Services.”



“Being an activity lead has given me many wonderful opportunities to experience the sheer joy kids bring to an activity. I think it’s great that even the youngest kiddo can experience the joy of giving through volunteering with LHH.”


“It’s wonderful to witness the LHH families and the residents (at Beckett Meadows Memory Care Unit) brighten each other’s day. There have been so many special moments between the residents and the children. It’s truly inspiring!”



“It is so wonderful to meet so many families wanting to make a difference in our community.  The smiles and positive impact these young children bring to the residents of the Summit at Westlake Hills is so inspiring!”


“It’s so wonderful to see families working together to help their community. Meeting people of all ages that care about and enjoy giving back is a really exciting experience!”


“I love serving with children because I get to watch them develop their independence through work, simultaneously discovering their own social responsibility and the positive impact they can make as individuals.”


“As a teacher and a mom, nothing is more important to me than instilling civic pride and a sense of community in those around me. Little Helping Hands is the perfect avenue for both!”


“I love what LHH does for the Austin community. The volunteering will encourage life long philanthropy for these children. That makes me feel good about leading activities.”


“I am so lucky to get to help families work together to create positive change in their communities. I always leave these activities feeling energized and ready to take on the world!”


“It’s wonderful to see huge compassion in such little people. Families working together to build up each other and their communities is just a really cool experience to be a part of.”

“I enjoy working with Little Helping Hands because it is amazing to be around children who are willing to try something new to help others. Children can bring joy and wonder to almost any situation.”


“I love to see how excited the kids are when they realize they are helping people and making a difference. What better way for them to learn the importance of giving than by seeing their parents do it? It’s brilliant!”


” I became an activity lead after seeing the positive impact volunteering at the Hope Food Pantry has on my family. I’m proud to be part of an organization that provides children in our community the invaluable opportunity to learn the importance of giving back.”


“It’s an honor and a pleasure to work with such a wonderful organization such as Little Helping Hands. I applaud its commitment to find and create volunteer opportunities for young children and their families. It’s not an easy thing to do but they do it. I’m very proud to be part of this team!”


“Children have such a innate desire to jump in and help, so working with an organization that combines this with the opportunity to instill a passion for community involvement is great. Being a lead combines two of my favorite things: children and community outreach, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”


“I’m proud an excited to be part of the LHH community. It’s inspiring to see our youth grow up with community outreach as a part of their normal, everyday lives. I wish Little Helping Hands was around in the town where I grew up!”


“Little Helping Hands helps children understand what it means to be a part of a community, and how they can make a positive impact. They learn valuable lessons and knowledge, and have fun while doing it! I am excited to be a part of the process!”
