Lions Supporting Teachers
Lions Quest has a history spanning back to 1984, and has been a flagship program of Lions in Australia since 1988. In Australia, Lions Quest is proudly a project of The Australian Lions Wellbeing Foundation. Lions Quest currently operates in over 100 countries worldwide.
Lions Clubs and their members are key to the success and expansion of Lions Quest, supporting the program through local funding, informing schools about Lions Quest, and undertaking joint service projects with schools if requested (Lions Quest has a community participation module, which reflects and supports the Lions model of service.)

Intent v’s Impact
This education session for Lions Club, small groups or individuals is based on a Year 8 lesson from the Lions Quest Skills for Adolescence curriculum.
The aim of the session is to raise awareness and stimulate thought and discussion about effective communication. Sometimes a message can be misunderstood because the sender and receiver have different perceptions. The message the speaker intends to communicate is not always what the receiver hears.
So get a few people together, select a volunteer to be the facilitator, and spend 15-30 minutes following the presentation and exploring the topic, whilst also getting a feel for the type of skills Lions quest teaches young people, skills that can support them through all stages of adulthood.
