A summary of information from the Lions International pages on promoting the Service Journey

The Service Journey is an approach to living and serving well. To making a real difference people can see and feel. It encompasses four simple phases:

  1. LEARN – Each of our global causes presents significant challenges to humanity. Knowing more about diabetes, vision, hunger, the environment and childhood cancer is how you can start working with your club toward solutions. Explore our Global Causes
  2. DISCOVER – The Service Toolkit and Advocacy Toolkit are filled with resources to help you activate your club for greater impact. Assess the needs of your club and your community, plan your next fundraiser, raise awareness of the causes you care about and more.
