The youth of a community are not only a valuable source, but are a vision of our future.  We cannot take them for granted.  Many of today's young men and women have the capabilities and the desires to make a difference in the world around them.  They want to volunteer; to help; to be a contributor to their own communities.

We, as Lions, have a unique opportunity.  Through the Youth Outreach program, we can challenge youth to learn, to achieve, and to serve.  By experiencing satisfaction of making a contribution today, we can encourage a commitment that will last a lifetime. Tomorrow depends upon what we do today.

Youth Outreach mission is to help and challenge youth to learn, to achieve and to grow. It applies to drug abuse prevention, community services, education, environment, health, international services and recreation programs. Changing Tomorrow Today is a multifaceted Lions youth program.
