Assisteens is Assistance League of Irvine’s teenage auxiliary. Comprised of members’ daughters and their friends, Assisteens seeks to instill the values of volunteerism and service within the community.

The teens, who attend grades 7-12 throughout Irvine, have their own philanthropic projects and fundraising events. They play a major role during the Young Masters™ Art Show. Assisteens lead many of the arts and crafts activities including the face painting, a very popular station!

The group has assisted in the annual fundraiser events as well. They make items to sell for their own fundraising, decorate, provide hospitality, and give assistance throughout the festivities.

Assisteens auxiliary was formed in 1993 and has over 100 members.
