ASSISTEENS® is an 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 has its own Governing Body, a vibrant, energetic, and thriving group of Teens, whose main goal is to support their chapter’s philanthropic programs and activities. Assisteens select, vote on and complete their own service projects within the community. In 2019-2020 we logged 941 philanthropic community service hours. For our Teen members, this auxiliary 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 thoughtfully spent your time outside of school, serving the community. Along with fulfilling hours of volunteer work, there are also opportunities to get to know the other Assisteens from other schools through the monthly membership meetings and fun games and group activities.
Assisteens only accept applications in 8th grade, with our members making a four-year commitment to the program throughout their high school years. Through their philanthropic work and relationship building, Assisteens develop a sense of community and personal responsibility, self-reliance, and leadership skills.
