Teacher Training

Youth development programs have the greatest chance to succeed when combined with experiential, program-specific instructor training. To ensure the integrity and quality of our programs, educators must participate in a Lions Quest professional development workshop in order to obtain our curriculum.

Lions Quest professional development workshops are offered in a variety of formats, allowing for flexibility, accessibility and sustainability.

Continuing Education Credit Options are available for Lions Quest workshop participation in specific locations.
