Youth Programmes

Huddersfield Lions support young people by recognising their efforts and providing them with opportunities to learn, achieve and grow.

We support TACADE, one of the world’s leading personal development and drug prevention education organisations.

The Young Ambassador of the 21st Century scheme acknowledges today’s young people working as volunteers and gives them the recognition they deserve.

The Lions Youth Exchange Programme aims to “create and foster a spirit of understanding among peoples across the world” by enabling exchanges between countries in every part of the world.

The Lions International Peace Poster Contest encourages young people, ages 11 to 13, to artistically express their views of peace – the overall worldwide winner is introduced at the Lions United Nations Day at the United Nations Headquarters in New York each year.
