About Leo Club
Leadership, Experience, Opportunity
In 1957, Lions Jim Graver and William Ernst of the Glenside Lions Club saw a need for a service club for young people. So in Pennsylvania the first Leo club was formed with kids from Abington High School.
In October 1967, the Leo Club Program became an official program of the Lions Club International. The Leo Club Program objective is:
"To provide the youth of the world an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of the local, national, and international community." Cuurently there are over 5,700 Leo clubs around the world. The program has grown to include more than 144,000 Leos in more than 141 countries.

Our club is focused on our objective; providing our youth an opportunity to serve in their community. They elect the officers to run the club. The kids vote on ideas for community service projects, organize, plan and execute their ideas. The kids also plan fund raisers to assist with their service projects. All money raised from the public goes back to the community. They are supervised by three adults from their sponsoring Lions club, The North Hardin Lions Club.
