Established in September 2019, Assisteens is Assistance League of Coppell’s teen auxiliary. When students join Assisteens, they learn the value of volunteerism and become contributing members of the community.  Assisteens members determine the charitable programs and volunteer opportunities where they will participate. This gives the members a sense of ownership and excitement over the programs they serve.  This group meets monthly during the school year and is open to students in grades 7 – 12.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact Debbie Hinson, Assisteens Coordinator, at alcoppellac@gmail.com.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR

Please join us at our end of year celebration on May 15 from 3-4:30pm. There will be swimming and other outdoor games; snacks and drinks will be available. This event will be a great way to get to know some of the Assisteens members! Please contact Debbie Hinson, Assisteens Coordinator, at alcoppellac@gmail.com for more information and to RSVP.
