Optimist Clubs are dedicated to "Bringing Out the Best in Kids"
and do their part through community service programs. Since each Club is
autonomous and run by members in their community, Optimists have the unique
flexibility to serve the youth of their area in any way they see fit. Optimist
Clubs see a need in their community and react to it.
Optimists conduct 65,000 community service projects each year, spending $78 million in their communities. Annually, six million kids are positively affected by Optimist programs.
Each year the organization awards unique, innovative and well-run community service projects through the Community Projects Awards (CPA) program. Click here to see some unique project ideas from the 2011-2012 CPA winners.
