Alpha Leo Clubs
Leo Clubs are the youth organization of Lions Clubs International and are open to individuals 12 to 18 years of age. Leo Clubs are non-political and non-religious, according to the Lions principles. The purpose of the Leo Club is to promote service activities among young people, give Leos the opportunity to educate themselves, and to accumulate experience in leadership and service activites. Being a Leo is also about making new friends in the neighborhood, within the country, and on the international level.

The first Leo Club was organized in Glenside, Pennsylvania in 1957, by Lions members James Graver and William Ernst. They created the Leo Club as a way of introducing community service to young people. When Lions Clubs around the world learned of this group of young volunteers, they duplicated the concept, and soon, Leo CLubs were formed all over the world. 
In the fiscal year 1967-68, the Board of Directors of Lions CLubs International officially adopted the Leo Club program.

The movement has now grown to more than 5,500 clubs in more than 139 countries with approximately 144,000 members.
