National Youth of the Year Quest
Each Year East Ballina Lions Club holds a Club level of the Australian National Youth of the Year Quest.
Youth of the Year is designed to encourage student’s interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community. The students meet in fellowship and have the opportunity of open discussion, exchange of ideas and meet professional people of a community service Club organisation. It provides students with the incentive to pay greater attention to the general qualities, so vital in developing our youth into first class citizens.
A high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement is sought in its potential winners. By emphasising these qualities it hopes to provide outstanding role models for the youth of Australia and an overall increase in the confidence of young men and women.
