Assisteens®

 “It’s fine to serve youth, but better to let youth serve.”

-- Anne Banning, Assistance League Founder  

 

Assisteens®, a volunteer teen service group open to girls and boys in grades 7-12, is an auxiliary of the Assistance League of Salt Lake City. Assisteens auxiliaries have been a part of the Assistance League chapters nationwide since 1959. This is a special year for our Assisteens as they celebrate their 10th anniversary at the same time as Assistance League of SLC commemorates 40 years of service! x2

Membership: Assisteens meet once a month and pay annual dues of $25.00 to become members of both the local and national Assistance League. Leadership is a combination of Assisteens members, parents and an Assistance League Board member. Membership encourages a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, poise, public speaking and leadership skills. Our current membership represents 12 high schools across the Salt Lake valley.  Fulfilling school community service requirements, making new friends and laughing a lot is just part of the Assisteens experience!

Programs: Assisteens support many of the philanthropic programs carried out by the Assistance League, including bagging clothing for Operation School Bell, labeling books for Book Bank and sorting donations/helping customers at the Thrift on 33rd. Assisteens also select and complete their own service projects within the community. During the 2016-17 school year, our Assisteens sorted clothing at the Homeless Youth Resource Center, hosted a holiday party with preschoolers at the Boys and Girls Club and a birthday party for children at a Domestic Violence Shelter, potted flowers for residents at a local senior center, assembled toiletry kits and hosted craft stations for children at a transitional housing center and made over 100 bunny baskets for children at the local YWCA.

 

Community Service + Friends + Fun = Assisteens
