Meeting the needs of
young people in communities worldwide, Optimist Clubs have
been "Bringing Out the Best in Kids" since 1919.
Optimist Clubs conduct positive service projects aimed at
providing a helping hand to youth. Club Members are best
known in their communities for their upbeat attitudes. By
believing in young people and empowering them to be the
best they can, Optimist volunteers continually make this
world a better place to live. There are 100,000 individual
Members who belong to more than 3,100 autonomous Clubs.
Optimists conduct 65,000 service projects each year,
serving six million young people. Optimists also spend $78
million on their communities annually.
