YEP 2015 Presentation

The 2015 District 4-C4 Youth Exchange Program team is composed of Co-Chairs Lions Michael Chan, Dr . Jun Valera, and Frank Tang. The district's YEP was revived by Lion IPDG Jack Van Etten's commitment to youth through the innovations of last year's YEP Co-Chairs Lions Dr Jun Valera and Romy Molina. With the vision and dedication of Lion DG Macy Mak Chan, focusing on the youth exchange, youth outreach and Leos, the district's YEP is in full blast. Her goals to expand the district's YEP beyond Europe and Japan, challenged the YEP Team to strive for more...
