Youth Volunteer Opportunities


 
Leadership. Experience. Opportunity. These are just a few of the rewards young people gain from participating in Leos. They also happen to be the values that create the acronym of our club name.

As the youngest members of Lions Clubs International, Leos embody the best qualities of our incredible organization. They are devoted young people who realize the power of action. Together, Leos and Lions form a powerful partnership—one of mutual respect, where Lions learn from the innovative insights of Leos, and where Leos gain access to the proven strategies of those who’ve successfully served the world for decades. 

Leo clubs provide youth with volunteer opportunities – and are also a place to grow and have fun.

Poulsbo Noon Lions have started four Leo clubs in the North Kitsap area:

NK Vikings Leo Club at North Kitsap High School
Chartered by our club in 1999. Membership is open to all NKHS students. The club (with 47 members) meets every Thursday after school during the school year, and participates in many community service projects. 2023 Advisor: Stephen Nolet. Lion contact: Karl Ostheller

     These Leos hold regular blood drives, sell hot dogs and pop for a fund-raiser, and collect clothing and food items for their Fill The Bus event. They also help put together hygiene kits for Project Connect, sort eyeglasses, and assist at our annual Pancake Breakfast.

Poulsbo Middle School Leo Club
In 2005, this Leo Club was founded with nearly 40 members. They meet every Monday at 2:45 p.m.
