BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN KIDS!
It’s our motto; it’s who we are and what we do. We are people who care about our communities and want to make a difference in the lives of young people. Optimist Clubs conduct positive service programs for children in communities throughout the world. 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. Optimist volunteers continually make this world a better place to live. There are over 75,000 individual Members who belong to more than 2,600 autonomous Clubs. Optimists conduct 65,000 service projects each year, serving six million young people.
THE OPTIMIST CREED
PROMISE YOURSELF -
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
For nearly 100 years, Members of the Optimist Clubs have committed themselves to making a difference in the lives of youth through hands-on service work.
