Youth Projects

Nunawading Lions pride themselves on our involvement with the youth in our community.

Youth of the Year

Four Local Secondary Colleges have partnered with Nunawading Lions for 21 years providing students wishing to participate in Lions' Youth of the Year project. Blackburn High, Kingswood, Mullauna and Forest Hill College give their students the opportunity to be involved in this Australia wide competition. YOTY allows students to showcase their leadership and organisational skills as well as their efforts to enhance their community.

Judgment is based on public speaking, leadership skills, and community involvement.




LEADERSHIP- developing leadership skills.

EXPERIENCE- being involved in community service

OPPORTUNITY- opportunities for making friends

Active, social and fun!


The Forest Hill College Leo club was established in 2018 and is sponsored by Nunawading Lions. The club is open to any student of the college between the ages of 12 and 18 and is run at the college with a Leo Advisor from Nunawading Lions in attendance. Activities run by the Leos include a trivia night, BBQs at college events, and collecting bread tags.

Mock Job Interviews
