177 Days ago

New and Returning Members are Invited to Register Online

MISSION VIEJO, CA --(Marketwired - February 01, 2016) - Lion's Heart, a nationwide volunteer platform for 6th - 12th grade students, will open 2016 enrollment on February 1 at 12:00 p.m. PST. The non-profit is dedicated to helping teens develop meaningful life skills through leadership opportunities and philanthropic experiences. Unlike other popular organizations, Lion's Heart does not allow fundraising to ensure all energy is spent giving back to the communities served. New and returning Members are invited to register online at lionsheartservice.org/join.aspx.

Lion's Heart has 49 chapters and nearly 3,000 active Members across the country. The organization arranges Members into groups, and each group of teen Members elects its own officers and runs its own meetings. With this structure, Members have the power to choose how they want to serve the community and are encouraged to support causes that are meaningful on a personal level.

"Lion's Heart is unlike any other teen volunteer organization in the country in that we don't rely on our Members for fundraising," says Terry Corwin, Executive Director of Lion's Heart. "Our mission is to teach teens the value of community service in a way that inspires them to continue to give back throughout their lifetime."
