Lions in Australia Help Chart a New Course for Troubled Young People

Many of our members work on projects to meet the specific needs of youth – whether they’re at risk for vision loss or don’t have enough to eat. In Australia, Lions support a program that helps troubled young people chart a new course for their future.

We sent a film crew to Sydney to find out about a cruise that is unlike any other. The Aboriginal Cultural Cruise provides stunning views of the harbor. A look at aboriginal history and culture. And a journey of transformation and hope for many of the crew, who are part of the Lions’ Tribal Warrior project.

Thanks to a grant from LCIF, Tribal Warrior gives life changing opportunities to “at risk” youth. Rob Roberts, a member of the Redfern Waterloo Lions Club, told our video crew, “Tribal Warrior provides maritime training to a lot of disadvantaged Australians, with the emphasis on indigenous youth. Our kids are our future.  And we’ve got to look after them and nurture them.”

    In my life I have learned that Lions and Lionesses believe in the best, and in forgiving and accepting apologies graciously rather than holding grudges and bringing up mistakes of the past.
