This comprehensive program challenges young people to learn, to achieve and
to serve. By focusing on volunteerism, it steers young people away from
harmful behaviors such as gang involvement, violence and substance abuse.
- "The Future Is Ours...So Now What?"
At the heart of the
Lions youth outreach initiative is a comprehensive educational unit,
including a video program designed to motivate youth to volunteer, called
"The Future Is Ours...So Now What?"
Lions clubs around the world sponsor drug
abuse and violence prevention curricula in their community schools. The
Lions-Quest "Skills for Growing," "Skills for Adolescence" and "Skills for
Action" programs teach young people the skills needed to resolve conflicts
peacefully, say no to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and grow into
personally and socially responsible adults.>
