ASSISTEENS® is a teen auxiliary of Assistance League® of Fresno, designed to train young men and women in philanthropic work, fundraising activities, and leadership skills. Assisteens began providing guidance to 9th-12th grade girls in 1989. In 2002, the first class of young men was accepted. Currently, we are 137 members strong and represent high schools in Fresno County. We are a non-profit, volunteer membership organization dedicated to providing programs and services that will enrich and improve the quality of life in our community and for our members.

Assistance League has more than 2,200 Assisteens members nation-wide. Assisteens have their own Governing Body. This vibrant, energized and thriving group of teen’s main goal is to support their chapters philanthropic programs and activities. Then, Assisteens select, vote on, and complete their own service projects within the community. In 2019-2000 there were 941 philanthropic community service hours offered. This is very helpful when applying for the National Honor Society, fulfilling hours for school leadership, or the Presidential Service Hours Award. Best of all, colleges love to see how you have spent your time outside of school. Along with the fulfilling hours of volunteer work we put in, there are also opportunities to get to know the other Assisteens from other schools through the monthly membership meetings and fun games provided.

Assisteens apply only in 8th grade. This is a four-year program. Annual dues are $45. Applications for Membership are accepted through the month of January only. Through their philanthropic work and relationship building, Assisteens develop a sense of community and personal responsibility, self-reliance, and leadership skills.
