Lions Quest is a life-skills program of the Lions Clubs International Foundation for the youth. With the proper implementation of the Lions Quest program in schools by teachers who have undergone the teachers training workshop, it hopes to impart social and emotional skills to young people for them to make the right choices…all the time. But the real success of the Lions Quest program lies with the collaborative effort and support of the community, school and family.
To learn more about Lions Quest program and eventually implement it in their respective communities, club presidents of the Lions Clubs from Multiple District 301-D2 trooped to the 5th Floor of the Harvester Corporate Center in Cubao, Quezon City last October 5 and attended the seminar.
