History of Harpenden Lions’ Life Skills

Around 1990 Lions Clubs International embraced the idea of comprehensive youth development to help children grow in a positive direction, protected from the dangers of drugs and violence. Based upon the international project the British and Irish Lions clubs became involved in Life Skills education as part of an emphasis on drug education and awareness.

Harpenden Lions Club took up the challenge of championing the cause of young people helping to educate them about the risks involved in drug and alcohol abuse. The club donated curriculum resources to local primary schools because these subjects had become mandatory as part of the then new National Curriculum.
