Specialty Clubs Program
Answering a Special Call to Serve
Launched in August 2017, the Specialty Club program was designed to create clubs in which members share a common interest or passion, allowing them to connect with one another on a deeper level. For example, they may share a hobby, profession, culture, common cause or life experience.
Forming specialty clubs allows groups of people around the world to turn their passions into rewarding service projects that directly benefit their communities.
Joining a specialty Lions club is a great way to meet people who share common interests and build leadership skills while serving your community.
Explore how Lions can apply and serve as a Specialty Clubs Program Coordinator to help support their district’s new club development goals.
