TEEN VOLUNTEERING - SIMPLIFIED

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a fun and easy way for teens to jump start their wish to improve the world through volunteering? Lion’s Heart can help. We work with local non-profits to find student-friendly volunteer opportunities and send them directly to our Members. Teens have the freedom to choose their favorite places to serve - anything from helping animals at shelters, to supporting our military, to cleaning up beaches or parks, to working at food pantries.

EXPERIENCES TODAY THAT INFLUENCE TOMORROW

Lion’s Heart's extracurricular program teaches students to lead and collaborate in small, inclusive groups. We provide a mobile and web platform for teens to build a Digital Volunteer Portfolio, showing their top causes served, awards won and leadership roles held.

95% of alumni included their Lion’s Heart volunteer experience on their college applications.

58% of alumni served in leadership positions in college.
