What is the Assistance League – Assisteens?
Assistance League of Temecula Valley, a chapter of National Assistance League®, is a non-profit, volunteer philanthropic organization dedicated to serving the needs of families in the Southwest Riverside County.
VYP gets involved with the Assisteens Project that is put on by the Assistance League.
Assistance League founder, Anne Banning, always felt that it was fine to serve youth, but better to let youth serve. So in the 1930′s she called on the daughters and granddaughters of Assistance League members to assist in various philanthropic projects.
We are proud to continue to encourage and provide volunteer opportunities for today’s youth. Assisteens membership is open to young people in grades 7 to 12. The aims of participation are to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, poise, public speaking and leadership skills.
In June Assisteens have the opportunity to attend the three-day National Assisteens Conference where they can participate in informative seminars and team building activities with Assisteens from across the United States. Assisteens are challenged by their peers in a real world setting, preparing them for life and decisions that they will need to make in the future.
Assisteens Auxiliary of Assistance League of Temecula Valley was formed in 1993. Assisteens seeks to instill the values of volunteerism and service within the community.
Assisteens raise money to fund ongoing philanthropic programs to benefit the community. Assisteens’ philanthropic program is Operation Book Worm. With proceeds from fundraising, new books are purchased for children who are clothed by Operation School Bell®.
Assisteens’ main priority is to raise money to fund their philanthropic program, Operation Book Worm.
If you would like to get involved with the Assisteens Group and maybe speak at one of the monthly meetings (held the 2nd Monday of each month at 6pm), please contact Jason Hope at email@example.com. Limited spaces available.
