Young Ambassador of the 21stCentury

 

This is a resurrection of the former Youth Award Scheme that the Guernsey Lions used to run many years ago.


Lions are looking for young people serving in their communities, making a difference to others in whatever way they can. These young people should reflect the ethos of Lions Clubs, providing service and leadership for others to get involved in their unique project.


With a closing date of 15thOctober this year’s launch is a little late.

 

The aim of the scheme, which operates throughout Europe, is to recognise, encourage and support young people who are actively involved in the welfare of the community.

 

In previous years candidates have been involved in helping young and older people, disabled, able bodied and disadvantaged and have organized projects in crime prevention, conservation, promoting healthier lifestyles and other initiatives.

 

This is for youngsters who have reached their 15thbirthday but not their 19thon or before the 30thJune 2020.

 

The winning candidate will receive a bursary to spend on their projects.

 

The winner will then go through to the local finals and may get to the District final in January. UK finals take place in February and the European final in late summer / autumn 2020.
