The Leo club was started with the purpose of providing youth an opportunity for development individually and collectively as responsible members to the local, national and international community.
The opportunity to participate in Leo activities helps young people prepare for the future by developing leadership, organizational and social skills. Leo clubs are a fun place to nurture teamwork relationships and are open to boys and girls between the age of 14-20.
