Leo Club Park in
downtown Hammonton

Leo Clubs are part of the Lions Clubs International worldwide service organization and are the official Youth programs of Lions. Beginning in 1957 and becoming established internationally in 1968, Leos follow the same principle and aims as Lions. Leo Clubs are formed and operated under the guidance of a Lions Club and are made up of young people from early teens to late twenties. Most clubs are of a similar age group with both male and female membership. Leo Clubs throughout the world have contributed in many ways to raise funds for the purchase of life saving equipment for hospitals, devices for the disabled and many forms of help to those less fortunate in their communities.

But Leos are not just raising money for charity and providing community service. Belonging to a Leo Club is about making friends, having responsible fun with a purpose and the satisfaction derived from helping others. Fellowship and social events play a big part in Leo activities. These clubs give young people the opportunity to participate in Lions projects and community service activities. One such project is the establisment and maintenance of Leo Club Park in downtown Hammonton.
