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.
