Lions Clubs International has developed the Leo Leadership Grant Program based on the results of the Leo Training Resource Survey that was completed by Leo club members in January 2009. The Leo Leadership Grant Program provides financial assistance to a Lions multiple district, sub-district or single district (not part of a multiple district) to help finance a Leo leadership conference. The goal of the program is to further develop Leos’ leadership skills, specifically in the areas of:
• Project management
• Planning community service projects
Lions Clubs International will award a maximum of one US$2,000 grant per constitutional area and the continental area of Africa this fiscal year and will approve eligible grants on a first-come, first-served basis. Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 1 of each fiscal year.
To apply for the Leo Leadership Grant, send your completed application to the Youth Programs Department at Lions Clubs International Headquarters.
All applications for the Leo Leadership Grant must have required signatures. If the grant application is being submitted by a single district or a sub-district, signatures of both the district governor and district Leo club chairperson are required. If the grant application is being submitted by a multiple district, the signatures of both the council chairperson and multiple district Leo club chairperson are required.
