Leadership for the Future


PR-770 Publication of Lions Clubs International


Since 1917, local Lions clubs have offered people just like  you the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching  as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community. The world has changed...and so have we.




Today, with more than 1.4 million men and women members in more than 180 countires, Lions have expanded their focus to help meet the ever-increasing needs of our global community.

We provide millions of dollars of support to an extensive international program dedicated to eradicating preventable blindness; we finance vocational training to help the world's underprivileged and disabled gain economic independence; we sponsor drug awareness and education programs for youths around the world; and more...

Our faces and our programs may have changed to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."

And, we continue to serve in ways that have made us a global leader in humanitarian assistance, community welfare and promotion of international understanding.


                     Individual achievement--united in purpose

As individuals, Lions are people of tireless drive, uncommon spirit and ambitious goals. United in efforts through more than 44,000 individual clubs around the world, Lions Clubs International is a strong organization with a proud history of accomplishment.

But our efforts and our future ability to serve the growing population of those in need in our own communities, across our contry and around the world depend on the involvement of a new generation of Lions. A generation of individuals committed as we are to eradicating reversible blindness, preserving the environment and building self-esteem in young people. A generation that knows that we can accomplish great things if we work together.
