Children and Youth

Children and Youth

Lions provide the young people of the world with opportunities for achievement, learning, contribution and service, individually and collectively, through sponsorship of activities identified as best practices in the field of youth development. In addition, Lions serve to make a difference in the lives of marginalized youth. 

Numerous programs exist to assist Lions in fulfilling the needs of youth in their communities:

Leo Clubs

Sponsor a Leo club in your community to get youth involved in community service and encourage them to become future Lions.

Learn more about the Leo Club Program.

Services for Children

The Lions Services for Children Program provides clubs with resources to plan community service activities focused on children in need.

Learn more about Lions Services for Children.

Youth Camps and Exchange

Participants of the Lions Youth Camps and Exchange program have a unique cultural learning experience by living with a host family and participating in camp, whether in their own country or another country.

Learn more about Youth Camps and Exchange.

Lions and Scouts

When a Lions club charters a Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts unit, Lions serve as mentors and help youth achieve their full potential.
