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. Join us today! 2009-2010 Optimist International President Mark Shriver has chosen as his theme “Promise Yourself… for the Kids,” which relates to our mission statement: “By inspiring hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids.” It’s all about making a difference, one child at a time, through a positive attitude, and a focus on our communities and our young people.
