The Assistance League of Denver established the Assisteens Auxiliary in August of 2021 for students in grades 9-12. Seventeen students have joined the Auxiliary this year. The program provides a unique opportunity for students in grades 9-12 to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, and leadership skills. At the same time the students are meeting their requirements for community service. With the guidance of Co-Coordinators, the Assisteens run their own meetings guided by parliamentary procedure rules. Co-Coordinators mentor the teens as they make decisions which affect the lives of those in need.
The Assisteens have a Board of Directors (Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary) as well as four committees. The committees are Membership, ALD Projects, Technology and Assisteens Projects. The Membership Committee works to log hours and assists with the MMU or Monday Morning Update. The ALD Projects Committee works together to plan future events and help with currents events. The Technology Committee assists with the Assistance League Website and Social Media. The final committee, Assisteens Projects, helps develop and plan different events and fundraisers. This organization consists of a hardworking group of teens who welcome new members!
