Lion’s Heart Mission Statement – A National Teen Volunteer Organization
Lion’s Heart is dedicated to organizing, inspiring, and empowering teens to serve the community in fun and meaningful ways while promoting leadership, accountability, and teamwork.
Lion’s Heart is the symbol of a strong heart for giving across the nation. We strive to create volunteer opportunities for teens who have this kind of heart. Are you ready to join this strong team?
How Lion’s Heart Got Started
A young man by the name of Spencer Corwin was about to begin his 7th grade year in school. He wanted to volunteer in Orange County, California, but didn’t know where to get started. He found a lot of organizations for teen girls to get involved in the community, but there wasn’t a lot out there for boys.
Spencer, and his mother, Terry Corwin, began Lion’s Heart to create more opportunities for young men to get involved in their communities. After the first couple of years, the organization grew and began providing opportunities for boys and girls to volunteer across the United States.
Why Choose Lion’s Heart?
In his senior year of High School, Spencer said, "A fellow leader once told our group, 'Those who serve in life are winners,' and that's something that I've always believed, to my very core. I have learned that when you give back, you are part of the community."Lion’s Heart offers this kind of connection with your community by providing volunteer opportunities for teens across the nation.
Our teen volunteers gain a lot from their experiences as they learn, grow, and mature.
"Lion's Heart gives me the opportunity to aid those in need and allows me to make a better connection with fellow classmates in the community." Trevor Curtis, Lion's Heart Member, Class of 2011
"I have watched the kids grow, learn and expand their compassion and respect for people and their community. Debbie Powell, Class Coordinator
Lion’s Heart has worked with top organizations like the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Education for the Children, The Rotary, Bethany’s Gate, Boys Town, Orange County Food Bank, National Beach Clean Up - Surfrider Foundation, Capo Unified School District, Saddleback Valley School District, Bell Tower Regional Community Center, Pacific Mammal Center Laguna Beach, Rose Parade, Adopt-A-Beach, and American Red Cross Blood Drives.
We are not a fundraising organization, and all of our staff are volunteers. Everyone is enthusiastic about serving the community, and teens can be involved with or without parent participation. It couldn’t be any easier to make a difference!
Lion’s Heart is for all teens across the nation. We invite you to join an existing volunteer chapter, or start your own chapter anywhere in the USA!
