Club Types

There are two types of Leo clubs, community-based and school-based, and all Leo clubs must be sponsored by a Lions club.

  • Community-based club – Members are all from the local area.
  • School-based club – Members are all from the same school or college and must have permission from their principal or activities officer.


Club Tracks

The Leo Club Program offers a two-track approach to better help the needs of club members: Alpha and Omega.

  • Alpha Track – For youth between 12 - 18 years of age.  This track focuses on the individual and social development of teens and pre-teens.
  • Omega Track – For youth between 18 - 30 years of age.  This track focuses on the personal and professional development of young adults.

Coach Jim Graver started the Leo ball rolling in 1957 and chances are that ball was a baseball. Graver was the baseball coach of the Abington High School in Pennsylvania, USA and an active member of the Glenside Lions Club.  With help from his fellow Lion, William Ernst, the first Leo club was charted on December 5, 1957.

As the world's first Leo club, the Abington High School Leo Club created the Leo acronym – Leadership, Equality, Opportunity – and they chose their school colors, maroon and gold to serve as the Leo club colors.  Later, Equality was changed to Experience.

In October 1967, the board of directors of Lions Clubs International adopted the Leo Club Program as an official program of the association.

The Leo Club Program as been growing strong for over 50 years.  Community service remains the cornerstone of the program.  Like their Lion counterparts, Leo club members enjoy serving their neighbors and watching positive results unfold.
