District Chair: Arthur Hayes - Email
Youth Insearch has had a long partnership with the Lions Clubs of Queensland extending back over 20 years. Lions Districts Q3 and Q4 in Queensland provide in-kind support by providing the venues, transport and catering for all our weekend workshops in Queensland. These efforts combined are estimated to be worth over $80,000 per year. Over the 20 year period, this amounts to around $1.6 million dollars of in-kind support. During that time, Youth Insearch, and the Lions Districts of Q3 and Q4, have assisted around 7,000 young people rebuild their lives, through the approximately 160 weekend programs held in the Districts. This is an extraordinary amount of young lives saved and/or rebuilt as a result of the joint efforts of Youth Insearch and these Lions Districts. We are very grateful to these Lions Districts for this level of support over such a long period of time.
The Lions District Q3 Youth Insearch Project is overseen by the District Governor Rodd Chignell and the Youth Insearch Project District Committee. The Committee Chairman is Lion Arthur Hayes. They are supported by the various Lions Clubs in the District who make the Project possible by fundraising and providing financial support for the Project and volunteers for the transport and catering.
The Lions District Q4 Youth Insearch Project is overseen by the District Governor Les Crossman and the Youth Insearch Project District Committee. The Committee Chairman is Lion Barry Bridger.
