The OPTIMIST difference… it’s all in our name!

What differentiates Optimist Clubs from any other volunteer opportunity is simple — OPTIMISM. And Optimists take their upbeat approach and work every day to make a difference for themselves and for the people around them. Optimists are people who believe that through positive action in their communities they can create a better tomorrow.
