Founder Assisteens began in the 1930′s as a way to encourage the daughters of Assistance League® of Los Angeles members to actively participate in community outreach projects conducted by the League. Over time, these young women exhibited true commitment to the Assistance League® mission, and their capability to attract caring girls and mothers grew exponentially.
Today, Founder Assisteens is an auxiliary of over 100 members that encourages and provides volunteer opportunities for parents and teens in grades 7 through 12. Our goals are to develop a sense of community and personal responsibility, philanthropy, self-reliance, and to promote leadership skills. Assisteens are expected to attend monthly meetings, social and volunteer events and fundraisers as they are able, with a minimum expectation of 15 service hours.
Over the course of the school year, we support the League’s various programs. Some of the activities include:
- Making no-sew blankets for foster care and homeless youth via the Assisteens’ Blanket Bin Program. Bins of materials are available for check out, so students may earn community service hours by making no-sew blankets from the comfort of their own homes.
- Supporting the Preschool Learning Center by working on the Kindness Initiative as a Virtual Pal, reading to preschool boys and girls.
- Supporting seasonal celebrations for the League’s Preschool Learning Center by preparing for Fall, Winter, Spring holiday events and the annual graduation ceremony.
- Assisting with preparing backpacks of clothing and hygiene kits for Operations School Bell.
- Preparing College Care Packages for the Bright Future Scholarship program recipients.
- Ushering at the Theater for Children on Sundays in the Fall and Spring and/or assisting with producing virtual productions.
