Young people who volunteer mature into adults who serve. Through our Young Leaders in Service Awards, Swindon Lions encourage youth in the philosophy and habit of service to the community. This recognition opportunity benefits youth by developing life skills, providing an acknowledgement from an international association that can be used for college and job applications.
Every year we work closely with various youth organisations based here in Swindon to support the development of our Young Leaders.
The Internationally recognised Young Leaders in Service Gold and Silver Awards are presented to 11 to 18 year olds who have spent time in regular service helping others within their group or the community (Gold Award for over 100 hours service in a year or Silver for over 50 hours).
