Melvin Jones - Founder of Lions Clubs International
Our Mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
Our Vision is to be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.
We Are Ready to Help, Worldwide
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller, and communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed - in our own communities and around the world - with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our 45,000 clubs and 1.3 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done.
Lions Clubs Members
Lions are groups of service-minded men and women who are interested in improving their communities. We are young people, families and Baby Boomers alike. To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need. Learn more about what we do.
There are many reasons to become a member. As a Lion, you'll:
- Help your community and gain valuable skills
- Make an impact on people's lives - locally and internationally
- Learn to be a leader - and lead a respected organization
- Network with business people in your community and around the world
- Energize your life and have fun
You'll grow personally and professionally. And you'll know that what you do is worthwhile and appreciated.
