9th -12th Grade Auxiliary of
Assistance League of Long Beach

Assisteens is an auxiliary of Assistance League of Long Beach that encourages and provides volunteer opportunities for young people in grades 9 through 12.  The goals are to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, poise, and public speaking and leadership skills.

In 2016-2017, through its Assisteens Program, contributed over 4,000 hours of service to the Long Beach community. Backpacks were filled with toiletries for school children and during the holidays gifts were wrapped and presented to adopted families. Blankets and dog treats were made and distributed to local animal shelters, and Assisteens worked side-by-side with chapter members at the Assistance League of Long Beach Thrift & Vintage Shop raising funds for the Orthodontic Center, Operation School Bell® and other Assistance League philanthropic programs. Assisteens also participated in various fundraising events for the chapter, such as the annual fundraiser and the CAMEO Fashion Show.
