Purposes of an Optimist Club
To develop Optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets 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 is what differentiates Optimist Clubs from any other volunteer opportunity.
Communities in the United States, Canada, the nations of the Caribbean and other countries throughout the world have been touched by the powerful, positive force of Optimist Club Members.
From sponsoring youth athletic leagues, to weatherizing the homes of the elderly, to conducting oratorical contests for young people—Optimist Clubs are responding to the special needs of our local communities.
Although we come from all walks of life, Optimist Club Members share one common trait. We know that we can make a difference in the lives of others.
