THE Lions Club of Leeton is continuing to support the many programs available under the organisation's wider banner.
In recent times, the Lions Youth Exchange Program had to be suspended due to COVID-19.
Youth Exchange chairman Suzanne Newton and committee are actively working with MD Diabetes chairman, Pat Mills and Type 1 Foundation chairman Ange McCaughley to look at other ways we can fulfil the ideals of the program.
"Youth Exchange is not just for young people visiting far flung overseas destinations, there has always been the opportunity for our youth to travel within Australia under this program too," Ms Newton said.
This year it is hoped a series of camps targeted at young people with special needs will be able to be held.
