District and Multiple District Leadership Training
Select a workshop or seminar topic that reflects the status and needs of Leo clubs in the district. Possible "how to" topics include:
- nurturing new Leo clubs
- advisor training
- helping Leos grow in their leadership role and learn from their experiences
- selecting and implementing an appropriate joint service projects
Presenters may be:
- Leos who can share their personal experiences
- advisors who can explain how to mentor a Leo club
- a panel of advisors, Leos, or both
- district chairpersons from other Lions program areas, e.g., youth outreach, who can provide service project suggestions
Publicize and promote the training workshop/seminar. Send personal invitations to Leo club advisors or Leo club officers explaining the advantages of attending the workshop. Personally contact anyone who fails to reply.
Invite Leos and Leo advisors. Also invite the district governor and all Lions club presidents. Inviting Lions from clubs that do not sponsor a Leo club will provide an opportunity for them to learn more about the Leo Club Program.
Obtain materials from the Resource section of the Lions Web site or the Youth Programs Department.
Use various formats throughout the workshop/seminar including:
- motivational speeches
- lectures followed by question-and-answer periods
- visual presentations from a computer, a video, or photographic slides
- small group discussions with ample time for the sharing of ideas
Request input from participants. Their suggestions can help improve the next workshop.
