Global Service Team Toolbox
The Global Service Team (GST) helps clubs identify resources and use best practices to improve their projects and, by extension, their impact. Quality service projects increase member satisfaction and help attract new members who are looking to serve. The GST champions the service programs, resources and grants of LCI and LCIF, empowering Lions and Leos around the world to maximize their service impact.
- Lions Clubs International Global Causes
Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world. That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
- The Service Journey, Service Toolkit and Service Launchpad
The Service Journey is an approach to living and serving well. To making a real difference people can see and feel. It encompasses four simple phases: Learn, Discover, Act, and Celebrate. We love these words because they transcend organizational formulas. They have no borders. They are the essence of Lions and Leos.
- Service Programs, Project Planners and Project Ideas
Lions Clubs International has a number of service project opportunities. Join Lions around the world in serving our global causes. Learn more about Lions Clubs International service programs and get resources to help plan service projects.
Lions listen to the needs of their communities and are voices to create change. Advocacy is a new way you can serve to further the mission of Lions Clubs International, Lions Clubs International Foundation, and the causes you care about. You can participate in advocacy by using your voice—through community awareness and education, legislation and public policy, events and partnerships. As community leaders, Lions and Leos can speak for those who need to be heard in front of those who need to hear them.
- Service at the Lions Clubs International Convention
Convention service projects allow Lions and Leos attending convention to experience first-hand, how host city Lions serve those in need. Projects take place at the convention center and at various locations throughout the host city.
- Anthem Volunteer Days
LCI and LCIF have partnered with the Anthem Foundation since 2015 to provide volunteer engagement opportunities for Anthem Inc. employees within their local communities. Clubs in specified Anthem markets/cities across the US, submit project proposals each June in order to receive up to $1,500 in grant funding for the implementation and execution of a service project that engages Anthem employees, friends and family members.
- Service Reporting
To effectively tell our story, measure our impact and grow membership, it’s critical that all clubs report service. Every project we participate in as Lions and Leos, no matter how big or small, is valuable and helps us continue our journey toward serving 200 million people per year.
- Service Awards
The Kindness Matters Service Award is given annually to a handful of Lions and Leo clubs for performing an outstanding service project in one of our global cause areas. Nominated at the club level, the Kindness Matters Service Award is a challenge for Lions and Leos to develop exceptionally innovative and creative service projects with the aim of leaving a positive impact in their communities.
- Lions Clubs International Foundation Grants
There are a wide variety of grants available to help Lions serve their local communities and the world. We encourage you to explore the different grant types to find out if there’s a grant that’s right for your club, district or multiple district now or in the future.
