LQ: Lions Help Prevent Bullying

Author: Leave A Comment

The latest issue of Lions Quarterly features a segment about Lions programs that address a serious concern among today’s youth: bullying. As more and more young people use texting, email and social media as a form of communication, bullying goes even further than the school yard and can now follow kids wherever they go.

The Lions Quest program provides resources that helps teachers open up a conversation about bullying in the classroom. The Leo Club program gets young people involved in community service activities, showing them the importance of helping others rather than hurting others.

Watch the video to see how Lions are making an impact on today’s youth. How does your Lions club address issues such as bullying in your community?

Palmer’s Blog: Sightseeing in Italy

Author: 2 Comments

This week while I’m visiting Lions and Leos in Italy, I also got a chance to do a little sightseeing around Rome. It’s amazing to see ruins like the Colosseum, which has been standing for over 2,000 years! And I visited the Trevi Fountain, where the old saying is if you throw a coin in the fountain with your right hand over your left shoulder, you will return to Rome.

In addition to a tour of the city, I met with key dignitaries and had lunch with PIP Grimaldi, ID Fresia, CC Pons and their lovely spouses. Also, a dinner with Leos, where I was reminded of how important it is to encourage youth to get involved in community service. I’m always inspired by the Leos’ energy and fresh new ideas.

Speaking of Leos — are you planning any activities with your local Leos to celebrate Leo Club Awareness Month in April? Be sure to invite young people to your Family and Friends event in April, as well!

Get Ready for Leo Club Awareness Month!

Author: 4 Comments

April is Leo Club Awareness Month — an opportunity for Lions to raise awareness about the importance of engaging young people in the community through youth programs such as Leo clubs. Consider sponsoring a Leo club and getting youth actively involved in community service, which can help them develop the skills needed to achieve their dreams and make an impact. Or, if there’s already a Leo club in your area, then plan a joint Leo-Lion service activity!

Project ideas for Leo Club Awareness Month include:

  • Organize hands-on Protecting Our Environment activities such as beach/park cleanups, tree planting or graffiti removal.
  • Invite Leos to help out at your next fundraising event.
  • Volunteer with Leos at a local women’s shelter or soup kitchen.
  • Plan a Reading Action Program activity that encourages Leos to share and read their favorite books to children.
  • Get Leos involved in Recycle for Sight.
  • Don’t forget to invite Leos to your Family and Friends event in April!

How is your club celebrating Leo Club Awareness Month?
