SEAL BEACH LEO CLUBS
The Seal Beach Leo Club provides an opportunity for youth to help the community while having fun. The club is sponsored by the Seal Beach Lions Club, which has been serving the community since 1939. Leo Club activities include service projects, fundraisers and social functions. The Leo motto, Leadership - Experience – Opportunity, is fulfilled as members work together in response to the needs of others.

Leo’s and Lions Working Together
The Seal Beach Lions Club provides support, guidance and counsel while the Leos are responsible for planning and implementing their own projects, and maintaining the smooth operation of the club. Leos have their own club officers and constitution. Lions acting as advisors are present at all Leo functions and meetings.
Who can be a Leo?
Membership is open to young men and women between the ages of 12 and 18 who attend school in the Los Alamitos School District or are residents of Seal Beach or surrounding communities. Leo candidates should be of high moral standards who wish to serve others.
Leos should attend meetings, participate in club service projects and fund-raising activities, and maintain a positive image in the community. Understanding that members are involved in many other activities, it is asked that members participate whenever they can. There is no charge for this Lions funded program. The Club meets on the third Monday of each month from 7:00 – 7:45pm at the First United Methodist Church** at the corner of 10th and Central in Seal Beach (September – May). **We are not associated with the church but very much appreciate the use of their facilities
The Seal Beach Lions Club also sponsors two additional specialty Leo Clubs: Leo Club of Braille Institute for the visually impaired in Anaheim and the Village Bible Academy Leo Club for home schooled youth in Garden Grove. For information about these clubs, contact Advisor Scott Newton.
