Review for Assistance League Of Kansas City, Gladstone, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In high school, I served as an officer in the teenage auxiliary of Assistance League of Kansas City, Assisteens. I am now in college, but my experiences as an Assisteen member and officer taught me effective leadership styles I continue to use today and ingrained within me the importance of serving one's community. The Assisteens service project I most enjoyed was the Senior Citizen Prom. We filled the recreation room of a local senior center with decorations, music, dancing, and games. We hired a professional photographer capture photos of couples and groups of friends throughout the event, and even crowned a king and queen. The most wonderful part of the event were the comments from some residents who looked forward to the prom every year and had a lovely time. One gentleman in particular, every year, arrived as soon as the event begun and partied until the very end. His smile made everything the Assisteens do worthwhile. Assisteens and Assistance League of Kansas City truly work to improve the lives of community members about them and genuinely succeed. I was blessed to be a part of such a group.

Role:  Volunteer & I served with Assisteens as a member for two years and as a board member for another two years. As a group, we completed service project approximately once every two months. .
