This new program introduces Lions to the most effective method of leadership available.  Used by Gandhi, Tu Tu and  Dr. Martin Luther King participants will learn the basic principles of a serving leader.  Lions who complete the certification process will receive a pin and certificate acknowledging their accomplishment.  The proposal to create a Lions Servant Leadership Certification has four objectives:

  1.  Promote and make aware Servant Leadership principles to all Lions.
  2. Boost usage of LLC and Lions University training websites.
  3. Encourage Lions to attend district, state, and international conventions, workshops, and training seminars.
  4. It becomes financially self-sustaining

Participants wanting to acquire Lions Servant Leadership Certification would need to meet the following criteria:

  1. Attend a Lions sponsored event that features Servant Leadership as a breakout session, speaker, or presenter.
  2. Complete the following  courses:  Silver Certificate* (LLC-Servant Leadership & Lions University-Ethics) and the Gold Certificate will require the completion of all 11 courses.  The Servant Leadership pin is awarded at both levels.
