Over 60 years ago, Lions Club International created a program for young people who wanted to contribute to their local, national, and international communities. They named it the LEO Club using the Latin word for lion which also serves as the acronym for Leadership, Experience, and Opportunity.

The Leo Club is very responsive to developing projects that individual members suggest.
Here are some of the projects the Leos have worked on:
