How does it Work?

The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards are sponsored by local Lions clubs.  Clubs may recognise as many young people as they find eligible, inviting youth groups or local schools to participate.
Each young person will be provided with a logbook in which to record their service activities.  These activities are in a number of different categories all the hours can be from the same activity or from a variety of services.  Categories include service to the young, the elderly, family members and the homeless and hungry. It could also include protecting our environment.  Young people may also wish to assist their local Lions club in fundraising or welfare activities.  All these activities count as hours towards the award.

What is the Process?

Poole Lions club will invite youth groups or local schools to participate in the award scheme and will distribute program materials.

The Lions Award Chairman coordinates with adult youth group leaders or school personnel, who can certify young people's service records and submit award forms to the Lions club.

Our Club Secretary will request awards from Lions Clubs International HQ in America.

Lions Clubs International issues a congratulatory letter from the International President and a certificate for each recipient.

Poole Lions Club will liaise with organisations to arrange for an award presentation for youth recipients.
