Why become a Lion

When a group of people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action on projects to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s how caring men and women serve together so they can make an even greater impact and change more lives.
