Lions Quest K-12 programs focus on service-learning, character development, substance and violence prevention, and social and emotional learning.
Lions Quest Workshop Goals:
Skills for Growing, grades K-5
Through six recurring, grade-specific, thematic units, Skills for Growing will help create a classroom environment that nurtures and enhances learning.
Skills for Adolescence, grades 6-8
A comprehensive life skills and prevention program for middle school youth that builds important social and emotional competencies by promoting self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making and service-learning.
Skills for Action, grades 9-12
The innovative and flexible high school program moves beyond the classroom to foster civic responsibility and build essential social, emotional, academic and workplace skills. Also includes the Skills Bank, a flexible component comprised of 26 skill sets that can be integrated into any subject or used as a stand-alone program.
