LEO Program

Leading for Life
Leo clubs provide young people with an opportunity for development and contribution – individually and collectively – as responsible members of their local, national and international communities.

Leo Club Motto

– Leadership: Leo members acquire skills as project organizers and motivators of their peers.

– Experience: They discover how teamwork and cooperation can bring about change in their community and the world.

– Opportunity: Leos develop positive traits and receive recognition for their contributions.

For Young People Who Care
Leo clubs are open to young people with good character who have an interest in serving their communities. Leo clubs are divided into two tracks: Alpha and Omega.

Alpha Leo Clubs are designed for youth between 12 and 18 years old. This track focuses on the individual and social development of teens and preteens.

Omega Leo Clubs are tailored for young adults between 18 and 30 years old. This track encourages the personal and professional development of young adults.

Youth interested in joining a Leo club can use the Club Locator tool to find a Leo club in their community and visit the Leos section in our Member Center for more information.

Make a Difference – Sponsor a Leo Club
Connections to young people can bring new energy to a Lions club and increase Lions visibility in the community. Through Leo club sponsorship, Lions have a unique opportunity to mentor potential community leaders and recruit future Lions club members.
