Lions Quest Canada
Lions Quest Canada – The Centre for Positive Youth Development.
The mission of Lions Quest Canada – The Centre for Positive Youth Development is to ‘provide leadership, knowledge and resources to develop healthy, capable young people of strong character.’ In pursuit of this mission the organization works with individuals, agencies, and organizations both in Canada and abroad to give Canadians access to the best possible resources and training experiences. We are incorporated as Quest Life Skills Inc. and we are a registered charitable organization.
Historically, this organization has distributed and promoted the Lions Quest Program material and along the way has expanded their offerings to include products that support the implementation of the Lions Quest programs in schools and communities. In an effort to make quality resources available to Canadians, the organization has gradually expanded the products we make available to include parenting and community capacity building resources.
In 1999 Lions Quest Canada was named the Canadian partner in the International Youth Foundation network. The International Youth Foundation is committed to ‘investing in what works for children and youth’ and as part of that network we have been involved in projects to support that relationship including Children’s Hour and Make a Connection.
In District A4, there are Lions Quest Community Workshops being held this spring. Details for the June 13 workshop in south/rural Ottawa will be distributed soon. This workshop will be open to community members but will be limited to 50 participants. For this and future workshops to be held within our District, we need to acquire funds. I am requesting that each Club within A4 donate $200 towards the A4 Lions Quest program. Donations can be made payable to District A4 and on the memo line, designated “A4 Lions Quest” and sent to the District Treasurer.
