Every day, millions of children around the world miss out on the joy of childhood. Instead of playing with toys, they deal with poverty, malnutrition and disabilities. That’s why Leo clubs take part in youth service activities such as international Leo projects and local community service projects to improve the lives of children.
Spotlight on Children
Spotlight on Children is the international service project of Leo clubs. Spotlight on Children projects give Leos the opportunity to enrich the lives of children by:
- Collecting food and clothes for local street children
- Repairing playgrounds
- Implementing after-school tutoring programs
- Visiting children in hospitals
- Raising funds for immunization programs
Through youth service activities like these, Leo clubs bring hope and laughter to needy children, especially on December 5, International Leo Day.
Sponsoring Lions clubs around the world contribute to the success of the Leo Club Program. When working with youth, Lions fill the role of mentor, motivator, counselor and role model. Sponsoring a Leo club also provides a way for Lions to mentor future community leaders and encourage future Lions.
Club Twinning provides Leo clubs with an opportunity to learn about another club and its culture. Leo clubs interested in twinning must follow the Club Twinning Guidelines and submit their club details to be included in the Leo Club Twinning List.
