Young Ambassador of the 21st Century
It is a misconception that all young people in the community are selfish and uncaring, as the media often portray them. Instead many show a great deal of care and compassion to people within the community.
The Lions Young Ambassador scheme acknowledges the work of young people working as volunteers and gives them recognition they deserve ... boosting their self esteem, their confidence in themselves and highlighting the charities and volunteer groups with which they are involved.
