Young Leos shaping up to be our future leaders

A new joint initiative between Outward Bound and Australian Lions Clubs will see young members of the Lions’ youth division, Leos, develop practical leadership skills to help them become positive role models and leaders in their communities.

The new three-day Outward Bound program for Leos aged 15 to 17 will reinforce and strengthen key attributes of Leos members such as resilience, responsibility, service and teamwork through outdoor experiential challenges.

With a key focus on the Leo acronym, leadership, experience, opportunity, the new program has been designed by Outward Bound to provide a key component of the development of Leos members as  not only the future of the Lions Club organisation, but as leaders who understand the value in contributing to the community.

The first course, to be run from 23rd – 25th January 2012, will see mainly NSW-based Leos Clubs, supported by their local Lions Club, sponsor participants to participate in the program, however clubs from other states are also welcome to join.

National Leos Coordinator Martin Peebles said Leos is very supportive of the program and is looking forward to expanding it across the country.

If you know of any young Leos with a desire to become a leader, you can help them develop their potential by inviting their club to sponsor them on the Outward Bound program.
