Welcome to the Leo Club Willemstad 

Leo Club is a youth Lions Club project that is ongoing for decades now. Leo Club provides young people with an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of their local, national and international communities.

This Leo-istic year of 2018/2019 is the first year that Curaçao has an Alpha Club. Alpha Leo Clubs are designed for youth between 12 and 18 years old. This track focuses on the individual and social development of teens and preteens.

We do a lot of fundraisers throughout the year, to then use the money we gather to do different events for the community. An event that we have done last Leo-istic year is the ‘Give Hope and Receive Love’ event. Our most recent ‘Give Hope and Receive Love’ event was really successful, with a lot of Leo’s helping out in every way possible.

For the year 2017/2018, and the event Give Hope Recieve Love, we held an event called ‘A Day at the Fair’, where we hosted an event for the ‘

We Believe Kids’ foundation. This foundation takes in children that don't have the means to pay to go to an after school daycare. This day was filled with bouncers, games, treats and many more. It was an all-around really fun day for all the kids.

We did a very big event for the year 2018/2019, the Spotlight on Children, Bookdrive. We collected books for over a month, and we donated these to various instances. We also went to a local school, and gave them a speach on how reading can be beneficial. We collected almost 2000 books from the community and it was received very well. Our end goal was to motivate kids to start or keep reading, and we did our best to reach it. 

Another fairly succesful event that we did the past year the ‘Stop Bullying’ campaign. Last year we televised the campaign. We made different tiny clips that were on TeleCuraçao every night for a week. This was one of our more successful events that had a lot of great feedback from the audience.

Leo Club Willemstad is now doing lots of different projects. You can find more information about these events here. Remember to keep an eye out for any new ones!
