STEP #1

Ask Yourself:
Do my goals align with those of Lions?

********************************

Lions are groups of service-minded men and women who are interested in improving their communities. Austin Founder Lions Club (AFLC) provide free vision screening to pre-kindergarten children in Austin public and private schools, and we screen children and adults at community events, such as Coats for Kids. We provide free exams and eyeglasses for children and adults who cannot afford these services. We recycle eyeglasses for distribution to developing countries around the world. We support Texas Lions Camp which serves children with special medical needs, including physical disabilities, Down syndrome, cancer and Type 1 diabetes.

As a Lion, you will:

  • Help the Austin community
  • Make an impact of people’s lives both locally and internationally
  • Learn to be a leader and help guide a respected nonprofit organization
  • Network with business people in our community and around the world
  • Receive the satisfaction of giving back while having fun.
