The Extension Workshop Program is designed to help Lions start new clubs. Lions learn key strategies for identifying potential club locations and how to approach and recruit important community leaders into a new Lions club.
Workshops focus on proven methods for recruiting and incorporate fieldwork to build confidence and share skills. The goal for each workshop is to form at least one new club, near the training site, while simultaneously training 10 to 30 Lions per session.
By holding a workshop, participants engage firsthand in the formation of a new Lions club, making the workshop informative and exciting. Participants also learn to involve charter members in meaningful activities to build a strong foundation. In just a few days, you can be on your way to chartering a new club!
No cost is associated with holding a workshop and Lions Clubs International will assign a consultant to conduct the training. Our consultants are Lions with extensive knowledge in forming new clubs and are ready to assist you.
Hosting an Extension Workshop goes towards the qualifications necessary to receive the 2012-2013 DG Team Excellence Award.
New clubs create more opportunities for community and service-minded individuals to be involved in projects they care about. Forming new clubs allows Lions to identify and meet the needs of underserved areas within their communities. New clubs also create diversity by attracting new members, including young adults and women.
