Club Types

  • Traditional Lions clubs are ideal for bringing together a group of community-minded people to serve the needs of their community in any way – and can be formed anywhere.

  • Club branches enable a small group of people to form a Lions club and start making a difference in their community sooner. Members become part of an existing "parent" Lions club, but select their own projects and activities.

  • Campus Lions clubs are designed for college and university students, administrators, faculty, alumni and other community-minded individuals. Members serve the campus community while developing valuable leadership and organizational skills.

  • Leo Lions clubs provide an easy transition for graduating Leos by offering a charter/entrance fee waiver and half international dues to qualifying Leos and peers, through age of 30.

  • Lioness Lions clubs enable former Lionesses to honor and acknowledge their proud past while enjoying the benefits of the Lioness Bridge Program and Lions membership.
