August 2012 International Youth Day
Engaging our Youth
A growing number of studies show that youth who engage in meaningful service projects experience a host of positive outcomes. Lions have an incredible opportunity to engage youth by developing programs they can relate to, and by encouraging their input and participation in the planning process. Allowing youth to develop and lead a service project helps them learn valuable life skills while emphasizing the role of service.
During August, Lions Australia invites you to join Lions around the world in recognizing the power of youth involvement. Help us shine a light on youth by planning activities in connection with United Nations
International Youth Day (www.un.org/youth), recognized each August. Or, organize projects throughout the month that engage and mobilize youth in the process of helping communities.
