Optimist International Headquarters
Temporary Change to Office Hours Due to COVID-19 Virus

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Optimist International wants to ensure the safety of our staff – as such, Optimist International St. Louis staff are working more remotely with limited days in office. During this time, we will maintain only minimum staff at our St. Louis office to support our team efforts and provide services to all our clubs and members.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition as we all navigate this global pandemic.
