Assisteens is Assistance League of Irvine’s teenage auxiliary. Comprised of 7th through 12th grade members from high schools in Irvine, Assisteens seeks to instill the values of volunteerism and service within the community.

The teens have their own philanthropic projects and fundraising events. They play a major role during the Young Masters™ Art Show. Assisteens create balloon animals and lead the face painting, a very popular station!

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.
