Leo clubs provide young people with an opportunity for development and contribution – individually and collectively – as responsible members of their local, national and international communities. Whether school-affiliated or community-based, Leo clubs provide their members with the camaraderie and growth that come from participation in community service projects, social functions and leadership development. Youth who join Leo clubs have fun, make new friends and experience the rewards of serving others.
Sponsoring a Leo club provides a way for Lions to mentor future community leaders and encourage future Lions. Through involvement with a Leo club, Lions can energize and inspire members, and even increase the sponsoring club’s community exposure, attracting potential members such as parents and families. Through Leo clubs, Lions have a positive influence on today’s youth and young adults, helping them become better citizens and leaders for life.
