Assisteens is the youth auxiliary of Assistance League chapters, and provides volunteer opportunities for young people. The goals are to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, poise, public speaking, leadership skills and to support the chapter. Assisteens raise money in a variety of ways to fund ongoing Assistance League and Assisteens philanthropic programs that benefit their community.
A group of Coastal North County San Diego youth formed an Assisteens Auxiliary of Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito in the summer of 2016. Since then, they have participated in several philanthropic programs within both Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito and local communities including Operation School Bell®; Make A Difference Day at Encinitas Library; Jeans For Teens; and Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito Thrift Shop.
The group also enjoys several social events together including pool parties, Belmont Park, ice skating, holiday gift exchanges, yoga classes and year-end dinners.
During the summers, Assisteens have attended the National Assistance League Assisteens Conference, worked at the thrift shop, met for beach parties, and held tech classes for Assistance League members.
Our Assisteens group is open to teens in grades 9 – 12. For more information contact Liana Neyer, Assisteens Coordinator.
