Youth Projects

The Leo Club Program provides young men and women between the ages of 12 and 30 the chance to gain essential life skills of Leadership, Experience and Opportunity whilst serving their communities in a positive way, making new friends and having a lot of fun!

Membership is divided into two groups, the school and community based 'Alpha' Leos are generally between the ages of 12 and 18 whereas the community based 'Omega' Leos Clubs have members ages 18-30.

Four Local Secondary Colleges have partnered with Lions Club of Nunawading for 21 years providing students wishing to participate in Lions' Youth of the Year project. Blackburn High, Kingswood, Mullauna and Forest Hill College give their students the opportunity to be involved in this Australia wide competition. YOTY allows students to showcase their leadership and organisational skills as well as their efforts to enhance their community.

The Forest Hill College Leo club was established in 2018 and is sponsored by Lions Club of Nunawading. The club is open to any student of the college between the ages of 12 and 18 and is run at the college with a Leo Advisor from Lions Club of Nunawading in attendance.

Activities run by the Leos include a trivia night, BBQs at college events, and collecting bread tags.

Leos participated in the Step Up Clean Up day at Blackburn Lake Sanctuary.

Each year several Lions Club of Nunawading members participate in Mock Job Interviews. Members roleplay Employment Interviewers with year 9 students giving them real-life practice at participating in a job interview. Students from Mullauna college have benefitted from this experience for the last 4 years.

Licola Wilderness Village

The township of Licola is owned entirely by the Lions Clubs of Victoria. It is the only privately owned town in Victoria and the only one not on mains power.

The town generates its own power, pumps and treats its own water and is responsible for its waste management.

The greater part of the town is occupied by the Licola Wilderness Village, where Lions Clubs since 1974 have run camps for disadvantaged children and special needs groups, mostly held during the school holidays.

Lions Club of Nunawading have supported Licola since its inception and regularly sponsor disadvantaged children 8 to 11 years old to camps.
