What: Leo Clubs are a youth organisation of Lions Clubs International. The word “Leo” stands for Leadership, Experience, Opportunity.
When: In Roma we meet on the last Sunday of the month and have a sausage sizzle every once a month in front of Home Timber and Hardware, as well as become involved in local events.
Why: The Leo Club gives us an identity, to be a part of something and give to the community. Alongside the social aspect of this local organisation, we can feel a sense of belonging and it’s always comforting knowing that you’re making a difference whether big or small!
We encourage young people to become a part of Leos.

Braking the Cycle is a community based program that partners volunteer mentors with learner drivers.
The Mentor acts as a supervisor, enabling the learner to complete the 100 mandatory log book
hours required to achieve their licence.
By not having access to a vehicle or person to assist with the logged hours, young people are therefore
restricted in employment opportunities and can quickly become trapped in a cycle of disadvantage.
The program will enable young people to develop a core life and employment skill that will support
further opportunities in the workplace, training, and education environments.
Young people will be empowered to break the cycle of disadvantage, unemployment, and anti-social
behaviour thereby reducing crime and traffic incidents.
Volunteer with Purpose
Volunteers are mentors from the community who have held an ‘open’ drivers licence for at least 12 months and are willing to undertake a days training to fulfil the role of a supervising driver.
Time given to the program is flexible to your needs and can range from one hour to several hours
per week. The time commitment is prearranged around the mentor’s availability.
Mentors develop and maintain a purposeful, empowering, and supportive relationship with the learner which will have a lasting impact on their life.
The program offers an opportunity to volunteer in a way that has tangible outcomes for young people and the community.
Mentoring provides opportunities to meet new people, develop new skills and add variety to the mentors life.
2 Learner Drivers
The program is for people aged 16-25 with a current learner’s permit who face barriers to meeting the 100
log book hour requirement. Typically learners will not have access to a vehicle or supervising driver.
Young people can be referred to the program through Job Service Agencies, youth agencies,
schools, or can refer themselves.
PCYC membership is a requirement of the program.
3 Become a Sponsor
The success and sustainability of Braking the Cycle relies on community and corporate donations.
The program needs sponsorship, community support, and in-kind donations of goods and services to meet day to day operational costs.
Ages: 5 to 18 years
Day/Time: Various practice times and Saturday morning sport competition all year round
