The opportunity to serve

We believe that those who give the most are the happiest. There is nothing more beautiful than individuals who reach out enhance other people’s lives. It teaches us the value of service to others and shows us how important our contributions are in making this world a better place, most especially for the children. Youth leadership development, anti-bullying programs, and literacy initiatives are just a few of the examples of service that you can find in our Club Projects page. 

Personal growth and development

Membership provides education in human relations and personal development. Being in service to others develops good character in every person. It gives us experiences that teach and develop us to become better individuals.
