Looking for New Experiences?
Are you interested in helping others? Meeting new people? Making an impact at home, and around the world? Lions club members use their time and talents to provide hands-on
assistance to enhance their communities. Through these experiences, members acquire new skills, cultivate lasting friendships, meet challenges head-on and learn a lot about
themselves in the process.

Looking for Fulfillment?
When was the last time you did something for yourself? Something that made you feel wonderful? Something that made the world around you a better place? Volunteering your time not only helps those in need, but also gives you a sense of pride and
accomplishment that comes from deep within. There is nothing like that feeling in the world.

Looking for Opportunities?
Do you want to pursue a leadership role? Would you rather lend a helping hand when needed? Lions clubs offer extensive opportunities for the kind of volunteer experience you desire. You have the alternative to work on projects that interest you, get on the leadership track, or engage in both, all while enriching lives.

Will being a Lion take me away from my family too much?
On the contrary, being a Lion enriches your family life. Perhaps your spouse would be interested in joining the club with you. There are many clubs that have couples as members. By volunteering, you are setting a wonderful, positive example for your children about the value of contributing your time to better your community. In many clubs, children are welcome at special club events and activities, and sharing the volunteer experience first-hand with your child will foster a life-long dedication to helping those in need.

What are the time commitments involved with a Lions club?
A Lions club holds regular meetings, which help the club plan projects and conduct business. Relevant presentations are also often part of the meeting. Most meetings take place during a mealtime, for the convenience of members. They are great opportunities to get to know club members better and to network.

Do I need to commit a large amount of time?
No, every Lion contributes what she or he can. Time commitments can range from as little as three hours a month to much more.
