Purpose of an optimist club
To develop Optimist as a philosophy of life utilizing the tents of the Optimist Creed; to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for law; to promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people; to aid and encourage the development of youth in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life and the world.

Our positive approach, our upbeat outlook and our commitment to creating a more optimistic future for kids that differentiates Optimist Clubs from any other volunteer opportunity.

From sponsoring youth athletic leagues to weatherizing the homes of the elderly to conducting oratorical contests for young people- Optimists Clubs are responding to the special needs of our local communities.
