Leading for Life
Leo clubs provide young people with an opportunity for development and contribution – individually and collectively – as responsible members of their local, national and international communities.
Leo Club Motto
Leadership: Leo members acquire skills as project organizers and motivators of their peers.
Experience: They discover how teamwork and cooperation can bring about change in their community and the world.
Opportunity: Leos develop positive traits and receive recognition for their contributions.

For Young People Who Care
Leo clubs are open to young people with good character who have an interest in serving their communities. Leo clubs are divided into two tracks: Alpha and Omega.
Alpha Leo Clubs are designed for youth between 12 and 18 years old. This track focuses on the individual and social development of teens and preteens.
Omega Leo Clubs are tailored for young adults between 18 and 30 years old. This track encourages the personal and professional development of young adults.
Make a Difference – Sponsor a Leo Club
Connections to young people can bring new energy to a Lions club and increase Lions visibility in the community. Through Leo club sponsorship, Lions have a unique opportunity to mentor potential community leaders and recruit future Lions club members.

San Marcos Academy
San Marcos Academy, in partnership with San Marcos Lion’s Club, is beginning a new and unique international Leo Club for students aged 12-18.
Through the Leo Club Program, young people develop and practice leadership, organization and social skills through participation in Leo club activities and service projects. Involvement in these activities often fosters a lifetime commitment to helping others, while enhancing the community.
The Leo Club will be planning service projects focusing on hunger, literacy, health services, and the environment. A few of the projects already on the Leo calendar are assisting with School Fuel on October 10, 2019 and with the San Marcos Lion’s Club annual Christmas Basket campaign.
In the spring, the Leo Club will sponsor the annual Culture Fair San Marcos Academy. At the Culture Fair, the Leos will have the opportunity to showcase various countries. The students will also have the opportunity to participate in the Lion’s Club Texas District 2-S3 Convention at SMA on May 1st through 2nd, 2020.
The Leo Club meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month during Advisory in the Shultz Lecture Hall. The first informational meeting was held on August 22, 2019, with 42 students coming! The club sponsors are Lion Rhonda McNeil firstname.lastname@example.org and Mrs. Diane Groves email@example.com, with Lion Nancy Smith firstname.lastname@example.org as a part time advisor.
