For decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special art contest in schools and youth groups.
Creating peace posters gives children everywhere the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity.
Lions Youth Exchange
The Lions International Youth Exchange Program was established in 1961 to give youth an opportunity to travel to exciting international destinations for up to six weeks.
Whilst overseas, the youth live with one or more families associated with Lions International to experience first-hand a new culture, lifestyle and customs.
