In our August issue, learn about this month’s Global Service Action Campaign, how to create a blueprint for club success, projects that serve children and youth in need, and more.
The Centennial Service Challenge kicks off with this month’s Global Service Action Campaign, Engaging Our Youth. Help us reach our goal of serving 100 million people by December 2017!

Reach out to children in need through literacy programs, vision screenings, feeding projects and other fun activities.
