Grade Level Options

The Lions Quest commitment to quality preparation is based on the proven premise that programs for youth are most successful when comprehensive, program-specific training is provided. Workshop attendance is required for all adults who wish to use Lions Quest K-12 core curricula. Conducted by Lions Quest-certified professional trainers, the workshop provides a complete orientation of the curriculum, teaching tips and practice in classroom implementation.

Our programs are offered in the following three age groups:
