The Lions Children Symposium is an opportunity for Lions districts and multiple districts to network and collaborate with area experts and community organizers to develop robust local projects to serve childern in need.

A Childrens Symposium is an effective way for Lions to:

  • determine the types of services that are needed
  • determine various ways to get involved
  • implement new Lions projects
  • provide assistance to local programs currently in place

Sample topics include:

  • Diabetes Needs:  Insulin, Medicine, Food Security, Recreational Camps and Diabetes Management Education
  • Vision, Hearing and Other Health Needs
  • Literacy and Education: Tools and Resources to Improve Literacy
  • Homeless Children: Health, Education and Safety
