In 1957 the Glenside Lions Club in Pennsylvania sponsored the world's first Leo Club, the Abington High School Leo Club with 35 students. In October 1967, the Lions Club International Board of Directors 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 clubs fulfill this objective every day and are an asset to the community. 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.
Leadership: Leos develop skills as organizers and motivators of their peers.
Experience: Leos learn the importance of cooperation through community service.
Opportunity: Young people are given an opportunity to excel, to develop positive character traits and to receive recognition for their contributions to the community.
