President’s Service Blog: Children Are Our Future

Building our legacy of service — this is especially true in our work with young people. Our programs, such as Lions Quest, Youth Camps and Exchanges and Leo clubs, make growing up safer and more fun.TamAtStorytime

By nurturing today’s youth, we’re growing tomorrow’s leaders into thoughtful, caring volunteers. A growing number of studies show youth who engage in meaningful service projects experience a host of positive outcomes.

Young people need role models, and we have more than 1.35 million Lions ready to fill that position. I believe we can shape young people’s lives by inviting them to help with the planning and implementation of service projects.

Start today. Ask youth to participate in your club’s upcoming service project.
