over the summer of 2018.

The New York Global Leaders Lions & Leo Club is an affiliated program of The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation. The Club was officially chartered on November 25th, 2015 to serve members of our Board of Directors, Global Advisors, Executive Committee, as well as Luce Leaders, Fellows, and Scholars.


The club now has 21 members and held elections in April. Past District Governor Peter Pergolis and Joanne Pergolis have joined this club and serve as Vice President. Its annual Charter Night Dinner will be held each year in conjunction with our Young Global Leader Summer Graduation.

Their newly formed Leo Club, for 18-20 year olds, allows J. Luce Foundation’s Young Global Leaders to join on a complimentary basis and they have 14 now enrolled. Apply to join the Young Global Leadership Initiative and Leo Club here.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.

The Club is supported by dues, activity fees, and LeadershipWorks, ‘America’s High-End eThrift Shop’ – a Green effort supporting Youth, the next step towards social entrepreneurship with charities under the Luce umbrella.

The side was built by New York on Tech intern Wayne Peterkin who has spent the summer working with the J. Luce Foundation and its related charities. Working with Wayne are Brian Perez and Timothy Tu. They have worked out of the foundation’s Midtown East administrative office located at Lexington and 59th Street in Manhattan.

“It is so wonderful to see these young global leaders offer their time and talent to uplift humanity,” states Lions Club International Past District Governor Peter Pergolis of District 20-R2 (NYC).

New York on Tech plays a critical role in supplying new faces into the tech labor force. At a time where computing and technology jobs are the number one source of new wages in the U.S., high school students are not being positioned to participate in the growing technology sector – and less than 15% of the technology workforce is Black or Latino, with only 26% of the technology workforce is comprised of women. New York On Tech has been working with students, parents, schools, community organizations, companies and professionals to create pathways for students in technology.
