Why Lions Quest?

Lions Quest believes the most effective way to implement positive youth development

programs and bring about lasting improvements in school climate is to equip

educators with current research, materials and strategies for addressing critical issues

facing youth. All three Lions Quest programs - Skills for Growing (grades K-5),

Skills for Adolescence (grades 6-8), and Skills for Action (grades 9-12) - help

foster in young people important life skills, healthy

attitudes, strong character, positive relationships,

and active citizenship through easy-to-use classroom

materials, superior professional development,

and important community partnerships.

Lions Quest research-based programs support

school-community partnerships by linking local

schools with the largest service organization in the

world - Lions Clubs International.

Who Are Lions?

Since 1917, Lions Clubs International (LCI) has worked for the betterment of local

communities and the world at large. Whether responding when disaster strikes,

helping the disabled face obstacles and challenges, or providing children with a safe

and healthy learning environment, Lions are there to serve. It is this dedication and

commitment to service that has made Lions Clubs International the world's largest

service organization with 1.35 million members in 207 countries and geographic areas.

More than 25 years ago, Lions embraced the idea of

comprehensive youth development in order to help

children grow in a positive direction, free from the

dangers of drugs and violence. Lions Clubs have

continued to support Lions Quest programs locally

through financial or in-kind donations, and through

partnering with schools on service projects that

impact their community.

To locate a local Lions club in your area, visit the Lions Clubs International Web site

at www.lionsclubs.org and use the “Find a Club” link at the top of the page.

Quality Matters

A number of national and international organizations committed to guiding young people toward healthy, drugand

violence-free lives have recognized Lions Quest and Lions Clubs International Foundation’s support of youth

development. Our research-based programs and superior professional development have been given high marks

by numerous organizations.

The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has

designated all three Lions Quest programs “Select SEL.” This highest rating was

awarded in recognition of Lions Quest's excellence in three areas recommended by

CASEL as the most important starting points for program selection - Outstanding Social

and Emotional Learning (SEL) Instruction, Evidence of Effectiveness, and Outstanding

Professional Development.

Lions Quest Skills for Adolescence is listed on the National Registry of Evidence-

Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), a service of the U.S. Substance Abuse

and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Previously designated a

“Model” program under SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) Model

Programs Initiative, Skills for Adolescence remains on the NREPP list as an evidence-based

prevention program, rated for Quality of Research and Readiness for Dissemination.

Lions Quest Trainers

Lions Quest professional trainers meet the highest standards

for professional development. All trainers have earned

advanced degrees in education or a related field with direct

experience and expertise in school leadership, positive

youth development, prevention, character education, and

service-learning initiatives. Lions Quest trainers are known

worldwide for making each workshop a relevant, productive,

and memorable experience. Participants continue to

Key Principles

Eight underlying principles guide all Lions Quest research

and development.

1. Programs are comprehensive, appropriate for K-12

levels of cognitive and social development, and based

on a positive youth development approach.

2. Programs are values-based, emphasizing self-discipline,

responsibility, healthy living, volunteer service, and

commitment to family, school and community.

3. Programs are designed as a classroom or out-of-schooltime

curriculum with school-community initiative for

highest impact.

4. Components are designed for universal, explicit,

systematic, and culturally relevant implementation.

5. Required professional development prepares adults

to implement with fidelity.

6. Parent involvement is integral.

7. Home-school-community collaboration is essential.

8. Evaluation and accountability support successful

outcomes and continuous improvement.

“We are very proud to partner with

Lions Quest and let our audience

know this is a program that we endorse,

that we recommend and that we want

everyone to know about.”

Skills for Growing

Lions Quest Skills for Growing can be used in

classroom, after-school or community-based educational

settings. The program brings school staff, families,

communities and children together in a unified initiative that

integrates social and emotional learning, character education,

drug-use and bullying prevention, and service-learning. The

program focuses the creative energies of children, helping

them become capable, caring, and healthy young people.

Program Goals

• Create a learning community based on caring relationships,

high expectations, and meaningful involvement

• Help children develop self-discipline, good judgment,

responsibility, and skills to resolve conflicts peacefully

• Promote a healthy approach to life, free from substance

use, bullying and destructive behaviors

• Strengthen children’s commitment to family, positive

peers, school and community

• Provide opportunities for children to practice good

citizenship

Age Appropriate - Curriculum kits are grade specific, with

six recurring thematic units - Building a School Community,

Growing as a Group, Making Positive Decisions, Setting

Goals for Service, Growing Up Drug-Free, and Celebrating

You and Me. Each unit contains easy-to-use lesson plans

with Discovering, Connecting, Practicing and Applying

phases, supported by energizers and resource sheets.

The Family Connection – The Guide to Leading Parent

Meetings supports and enhances the Parents as Partners

component of Skills for Growing.

Setting Goals for Service - Provides opportunities for

hands-on application of life skills through service-learning

projects that reinforce positive behavior.

Assessment – Evaluation is essential but doesn’t need to be

complex. It could consist of before/after comparisons of

school discipline, attendance, and academic performance

records. Teacher observation and student self-evaluation,

assisted by closure questions and techniques provided in the

curriculum guides, can be a beneficial way to evaluate comprehension

and skill development. There are a number of

tools for use in a variety of settings found on our Web site,

www.lions-quest.org.

conducted by Lions Quest trainers who represent the highest

standards of professionalism in education and positive youth

Easy Integration Paves the

Way for Implementation

Success!

How do teachers find the time to implement a

new program? Flexibility.

“Our teachers feel that Lions Quest integrates

easily into the academic curriculum,” explains

Darlene French, Comprehensive Learning

Supports System Specialist, Iberia Parish School

System, LA.

“We have always had a positive response to

the training and introduction of the curriculum.

But more importantly, we receive the same

response in our follow up after the teacher has

implemented the curriculum in the classroom.”

“The program reinforces

classroom management

and is very easy to use.”

“We also find that a lesson can be divided into

several days with no negative impact.” Iberia

Parish teachers observe students enjoying the

lessons and using them both inside and outside

the classroom.

“Lions Quest has been an integral factor in

improving school climate and meeting the

requirements for mandated implementation of

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports

(PBIS). We have definitely seen a reduction

in referrals for drugs and weapons and I feel it

is because of the prevention units covered in

all grades.”
