Find and join a service activity using MyLion.
November 22, 2017
When we set out to create MyLion, we emphasized connection with your club and with the larger Lions community. We’ve made it easier than ever to connect with your club and lead your service activities with ease.
Another app to add to your phone? If this is what you’re asking yourself, we want to assure you that it’s worth it for any Lion. In addition to connecting clubs and Lions everywhere, MyLion also has efficiency on its side. For Lions leading a service activity, MyLion eliminates many of the time-consuming set-up steps. No more manual lists of attendees. No more emails reminding everyone where to go and what time to be there. For service activity participants, find all the information you need whenever you want.
Here are a few tips from our experts.
TIP #1: See a service activity’s “Details” with the tap of a finger.
Using the magnifying glass at the bottom of your screen, you can search for and learn more about nearby service activities. All of the information you need is all in one place.
Once you tap on a service activity that looks interesting to you, you’ll be able to view the activity’s Details tab — name, date, cause, start times, end times, and a handy Google Maps pop-out that displays directions on how to get there.
• The Join Button: lets the organizer know you’ll be serving with them
• The Follow Button: allows you to save the event to your Activities section and join at a later date.
• The Share Button: makes it easy to spread the word about Lions by sharing your attendance to Facebook. Let your friends know you’re serving!
• The Message Button: puts you in direct contact with the service project organizer through MyLion’s messaging capabilities.
You can also add any service activity to your phone’s calendar for easy reminders. Just tap the three dots in the upper-right hand corner of your screen.
Tip #2: Find out if your friends will be attending the service project under “Team.”
Next to the Details tab, you’ll be able to find a list of all invited Lions, those who can’t make it, those who aren’t sure and those you’ll definitely see there.
See someone you haven’t met yet? Find out more about them by tapping their name, which will take you to their profile.
Notice a teammate who hasn’t responded? Send them a message in MyLion and encourage them to join in.
Tip #3: Show other Lions how successful and fun this service activity was by uploading your memories to Story.
Did you snap photos with your friends at this service project— planning ahead for a good Instagram? Upload it here so other Lions can see what you’ve accomplished!
Lose the paper directions and breathe easy knowing you won’t have to remember every single event detail; with MyLion, it’s all in the palm of your hand!
