Assisteens meetings are held at the Assistance League of Flintridge Chapter House at 4607 Oakwood Avenue in La Cañada Flintridge.  We are next to the library and across the street from TJ Maxx.  All meetings take place in the Chapter Meeting Room (CMR), down the driveway to the left of the building and behind Bargain Box Thrift Shop.

 

Guidelines for COVID-19 continue to evolve.  Assisteens meetings will follow social gathering protocols as required by state and local authorities at the time.  We look forward to in-person meetings as much as we are able.

Assisteens in Action
As members of the Assistance League of Flintridge “Assisteens” auxiliary, the teens meet monthly and work together on many projects.  They also staff the Bargain Box Thrift Shop one Saturday each month.

In addition to conducting business and working on projects, Assisteens receive informative presentations such as this one on plastics and their effect on the environment that was presented by Assisteen, Melina Tsotras.  She had been studying this subject in connection with her Girl Scout Gold Award.  Also at this meeting was Assistance League of Flintridge member Rose Nielsen, who brought her therapy dog Goldie and shared their experiences helping hospitalized children.  The Assisteens were so inspired by Team Rose & Goldie that in 2020, they voted to support the Amerman Family Foundation dog therapy program at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.  Assisteens purchased 137 embroidered, lightweight jackets that were delivered to the hospital for volunteers to wear during their therapy sessions.

“We have a wonderful group of Assisteens,” said Jeanette Viau,  Assistance League of Flintridge member and Assisteens Coordinator.  “They are very enthusiastic and strive to improve the community.”

Communication with Students & Parents
The Assisteens Coordinator regularly sends information and schedules directly to students via email. Be sure to indicate the best email address for your student during the registration process and let us know promptly if any changes occur. For your convenience, the information sent to Assisteens will also be sent to parents and posted here.  Specific student information, like names of participants for an activity, are always redacted in the online version.
