Leaders in Service is a way of
recognising our young ‘unsung heroes’, young people of
Secondary School age who work regularly and voluntarily in their
may be a young carer, a member of the
St. John’s Ambulance Brigade, a leader in a Brownie or Beaver
group or involved with helping the elderly. There are as many ways
to help others as there are other people!
interested Lions Club can take the idea
into local Charities, Schools, Clubs, Churches, Youth Clubs or
similar places. If a Club can find some young people who would
like to have a go, then the, ‘how to do it’ is as simple as 1-2-3.
A Young Person keeps a log of the
hours they spend in voluntary service and get it agreed by
an adult who knows, such as a group leader, a teacher, a
The log book is returned to the Lions Club who check it is
completed correctly. Completed log books are sent to Lion
Sue who applies for the Certificate and award.
The Club then arranges to handover the Certificates at
perhaps an awards ceremony, or maybe at a Club meeting or
event. This may provide an opportunity to invite others to
join in the celebration and get a photograph in the local
paper and encourage more young people to join this
project……..and consider Lions?
