Engaging our Youth

Engaging our Youth
Support youth in your community, or inspire the next generation of volunteers by inviting Leos and other local youth to serve on a project with you. 

Start a LEO Club at your local school, invite the youth of your community to participate in a project with your Club.  There are so many ways that we can engage youth every day.  The parents of the youth that you work with may even want to become a Lion after seeing what you are doing with the youth of your community.

Sharing the Vision

Sharing the Vision
Prevent future cases of unnecessary blindness through vision screenings and educational events. Give the gift of sight through projects that benefit those who are blind or living with low vision.

Participate in public and private school fall vision screening, hold a local health fair with SPOT screening, provide eye exams and eye glasses to low income and uninsured people in your community.  Visit local pre-schools and day cares to do vision screening. 

Relieving the Hunger

Relieving the Hunger
Improve access to healthy food for vulnerable populations in your community.


Work at your local food bank or soup kitchen.  Donate to your local school backpack program by providing funds or snacks for underprivileged children.  Participate by donating items for Soup for Seniors.  Provide food baskets to the needy.  It is so easy to reach out to those in need and you will be remembered and appreciated.

Protecting Our Environment

Protecting our Environment
Protect and improve the environment to make your community a healthier place to live for everyone.


Recycle eye glasses, go to your local eyeglass recycling center if you have one in your District spend a few hours each month processing recycled eyeglasses.    Spend a day cleaning one of your local parks or highways.  Provide recycling bins for your local community with the Lions Logo to show that Lions care about our environment.  Participate in your local recycling projects.




If you need help please contact your State Secretary Treasurer Lion Tammie Brightwell or go to MYLCI and watch one of the tutorial videos.  Don't ever be embarrassed to ask for help.

Connect with Community

Raise the visibility of your club and honor our legacy of service by planning a Centennial Legacy Project in your community. Legacy Projects commemorate our Centennial by making a lasting gift that will benefit your community for years to come. Start building your Lion legacy!



Promote Your Legacy Project

Your Legacy Project is an opportunity to showcase your project, your service and your club to the community. Here are some tips that can help you maximize this great public relations opportunity:

  • Dedication Ceremony – Host a dedication or ribbon-cutting ceremony and invite your community and local media to attend.
  • Social Media – Share project photos on social media or ask your community to share photos at the site of your Legacy Project. Use the hashtag #Lions100 so we can share your project on the LCI Facebook page.
  • Local Media – Send out a press release or ask a local reporter to help tell your story.

To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are asking Lions to help reach our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving more than 100 million people by June 2018.

Your club can make a difference in your community and contribute towards the goal by participating in the four Centennial Service Challenge Campaigns. You decide when to serve and which projects are right for your club and community.
