Making the World a Better Place for Children
Every day, millions of children around the world miss out on the joy of childhood. Instead of playing with toys, they deal with poverty, malnutrition and disabilities. That's why Leo clubs work on international Leo projects and local community service projects to improve the lives of children.

The 2017 BONITA SPRINGS LEO CLUB
Lets continue to give these kids the support they need to be successful since they are the future of Lionism.
Leadership. Experience. Opportunity. These are just a few of the rewards young people gain from participating in Leos. They also happen to be the values that create the acronym of our club name.
In total, more than 144,000 young people in 139 countries are proud to serve others in their local communities and to call themselves Leos. These young community leaders are friendly, active and dedicated to creating new and exciting opportunities by participating in their local Leo clubs. Social and professional connections are an additional benefit for Omega members (age 18 and older).
Leo clubs provide youth volunteer opportunities – and are also a place to grow and have fun.
