Having run successful Young Leader programmes in recent years. The Lions Club of Woodbridge & District are now looking to launch a further programme in 2016. The Lions’ Club Young Leaders award are aimed at young people between the ages of 12 – 18 who would like to get a taste of volunteering within the community. Activities can include working alongside the Lions at their events, but often extend much wider. Silver and Gold Awards are available for young people completing 50 or 100 hours respectively in the community in a 12 month period. Participation is documented and can also count towards other award schemes.
Parents of young people who have taken part have commented on the noticeable increase in their son or daughter’s self-confidence when dealing with other people. As one parent said, “Many young people have the energy and enthusiasm to help others in the community, the difficulty is finding suitable opportunities”.
