Leo Club, the youth organziation of Lions Clubs International, has been established to develop and nurture the youth of this world, so as to ensure a better tomorrow. The main aim of a Leo Club, apart from providing assistance to its parent Lions Club, is to organize events that would help in not only enhancing the knowledge and development of today's youth, but also solidifying their character by instilling virtues of leadership and experience.
With this aspiration, Leo Club of Calcutta Park Avenue was chartered on 1st September 1999. It is the youth wing of the Lions Club of Calcutta Park Avenue. Over the past years, Leo Park Avenue has turned out to be one of the best clubs in the Leo District 322B1.
Leo Park Avenue has had various perrenial projects throughout. Such as old newspaper collection, Adopting an Orphanage, Hosting the District Conferenece, organizing district level picnics.
We were the first Leo Club in Eastern India to take up the UNICEF-School-In a Box Program. We donated US$500 and handed over the cheque directly to International President Dr.Wing-Kum Tam.
The first to organise a six day Inter Club Competition- LEOUTSAV, Leo Park Avenue recieved the Best Leo Club of the Multiple District 322 Award.
Our club got the Best Club award in the year 2012-13 and has been awarded with the Oustanding club award several times after that including the year 2015-16.
Not only this but our club has also got the award for the Best Administration for 3 consecutive years. (2015-16, 2014-15, 2013-14)
This year our club hosted Leo Utsav 2016, a two-day residential training and leadership programme at ITC Fortune Park Panchwati on the 10th and 11th of Spetmeber 2016. Not to froget, the Leo Indoor Games League has been the signature activity of our club.
