As this month’s Engaging Our Youth global service action campaign continues, Lions around the world are celebrating International Youth Day through projects and activities that focus on youth involvement and development.
The power of youth is strong, and Lions have long since recognized and nurtured that power through youth volunteer opportunities and Leo clubs. Lions work with young people to help them develop and lead their own service activities, teaching them the importance of volunteer work as well as valuable leadership and communication skills.
The theme for this year’s International Youth Day is “Youth Migration: Moving Development Forward.”
