Josie Rawlings named President of Assisteens League

Your Miss Missouri Junior Teen, Josie Rawlings, was all smiles after being installed as the President of the Assisteens League! Josie has been actively involved with this organization for five years, going from Vice President to President of the Kansas City Chapter. With the opportunities of ALKC she has been able to promote the importance of volunteerism in today's youth, and has logged hundreds of hours of volunteer service.

Assisteens membership is open to young women and men in grades 7 to 12. The goals of participation are to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, public speaking and leadership skills. Assisteens raise money to fund ongoing philanthropic programs to benefit the community.  Each Assisteens Auxiliary may choose their own programs and assist the chapter with their programs and fundraisers.  Some examples of current programs include teen mentoring, meals for homeless shelters, hygiene kits, backpacks for foster children, visits to senior centers and reading programs.
