Port aux Basques youth in­vited to join new Leo Club

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - MARKETPLACE -

A new club for boys and girls aged 12-18 has formed in Port-aux-Basques.

The Leo Club — part of the Li­ons In­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion — is de­signed to teach chil­dren life lessons like: lead­er­ship, team­build­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The Leo club will also of­fer lo­cal youth op­por­tu­ni­ties to at­tend con­ven­tions all over the prov­ince.

Al­though it’s spon­sored by the Li­ons Club, first vice-pres­i­dent Va­lerie Clarke is quick to point out that there’s no fundrais­ing in­volved.

The Leo club is de­signed to help kids ex­press them­selves cre­atively while they learn skills that would be use­ful in post-sec­ondary school and the work­place.

Stu­dent mem­bers will also be able to count their par­tic­i­pa­tion to­wards the 30 hours of com­mu­nity in­volve­ment man­dated by the school cur­ricu­lum.

It’s also free. There is no cost to join the club. To find out more about the Leo Club of Port aux Basques, visit the Club’s of­fi­cial face­book page: https:// www. face­book. com/ Leos- ofPab-1811645605753207/

The lo­cal con­tacts are: Val Clarke and Wendy Stone Os­mond.
