Young Leaders in Service


The Lions Club of Ringwood and Fordingbridge is pleased to participate in the Lions Young Leaders in Service Award (LYLSA) scheme. The LYLSA scheme is part of the Lions Opportunities for Youth initiative. The LYLSA recognise young people between the ages of 11-18 years old for their community service within a 12-month period; a log sheet is completed and signed off by a responsible adult. This can be a teacher, youth leader or someone similar. Lions Clubs may recognise as many young people as they find eligible. The youngster is then presented with a beautiful certificate and this can be included in his or her Record of Achievement File.

Each young person will be provided with a logbook in which to record their service activities. These activities are in a number of different categories - all the hours can be from the same activity or from a variety of services. Categories include service to the young, the elderly, family members and the homeless and hungry. It could also include protecting our environment. Young people may also wish to assist their local Leos or Lions club in fundraising or welfare activities. All these activities count as hours towards the award.

The LYLSA are sponsored by local Lions clubs. The awards available are as follows:
