Hunter Valley Grammar School LEO Club
Hunter Valley Grammar School established a LEO Service Club in 2014.
In 1957, in the USA, Lions International adopted the LEO Club Program as an official program of the association. The objective of the LEO Club Program is “...to provide the youth of the world with an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of the local, national and international community.”
LEO club members around the world fulfill this objective every day. LEO club activities and projects enhance the community and help young people develop and practice leadership, organization and social skills.
LEO club involvement can instill in young people a lifetime commitment to helping others. The Leo club motto - Leadership, Experience, Opportunity - says it all.
Lions Clubs International (LCI) is the world’s largest community service organization, with 1.3 million members. Today there are more than 45,000 Lions clubs in approximately 200 countries and geographic areas. Regardless of the language Lions speak, religion they practice or politics they support, they all share a common dedication to helping people in need.
An integral part of the Lions international network, LEOs also have their own network of more than 5,700 LEO clubs in approximately 140 nations. The international scope of LCI provides LEO and Lions club members a unique global identity.
To become a member of the HVGS LEO club, young people have to be of good character and have a strong interest in serving their communities. At HVGS, Leo’s attend a fortnightly meeting held every Week B at 12:35pm in C7. In addition to this commitment to meetings, LEO’s volunteer for a range of service activities within and outside of the school. Outside of school hours activities are voluntary and certainly not onerous.
