Life-Changing Services and Opportunities for Youth
Our youth programs make growing up safer and healthier. Through Lions Quest, we bring crucial life skills to more than 12 million children in classrooms around the world. We cultivate capable and healthy young people of strong character through comprehensive, positive youth development.
We bring young people together. Our Leo clubs provide youth volunteer opportunities that inspire and support leadership in young people ages 12 to 30 by giving them the chance to learn, grow and serve by participating in community service projects.
We enhance their lives. Every year, thousands of young people travel around the world to learn about cultures, customs and friendship through our Youth Camp and Exchange program.
And we help them share a message of peace. For decades, the Peace Poster Contest has helped more than four million young people express their creativity, their aspirations and their hopes for the world.
Our Youth Program Contests each year allow high school juniors and senior the opportunity to earn scholarships to college by participating in the Diabetes Awareness Essay Contest and the Drug Awareness Speech Contest. For contest rules and topics see the Opportunities for Youth Page of the Texas Lions Website.
