Leo Club History

The 'Leo Club' idea started in 1957 from Jim Graver. Jim was an active baseball coach for the Abington High School in Pennsylvania, USA and was an active member of the local Glenside Lions Club. With the help from his fellow Lions, specifically William Ernst, the first Leo Club was charted on December 5th, 1957.

 

As the world's first Leo Club, the Abington High School Leo Club created the acronym for 'LEO' - Leadership, Equality, Opportunity - and chose their school colours, maroon and gold, to serve as the alpha Leo Club colours.  The acronym for 'LEO' was changed to switch Equality to Experience following a group vote.

 

In October 1967, a near ten years after the original club was made, the board of directors of Lions Club International adopted the Leo Club Program as an official program of the association. 

 

The Leo Club Program has continued to grow within the last 50 years. The Leos international network now consists of over 6,500 clubs in over 140 countries.

 

Community service remains the cornerstone of the program, fostering a commitment to helping others. Like their Lion counterparts, Leo Club members enjoy serving their neighbours and watching the positive results unfold from there actions.
