What are Optimists


Optimist International is a worldwide non-profit, volunteer organization, made up of more than 2,500 Clubs throughout the USA, whose members work each day to make the future brighter by bringing out the best in children, in their communities, and in themselves.

The Clarkston Area Optimist Club embraces this vision! Our club members use this Mission Statement as the catalyst for the multitude of programs, sponsorships and events we do annually to directly support, assist and positively impact the youth in our community.

Our core values resonate through our Optimist Creed, and remain a constant reminder of the examples we strive to set for the Community in which we live, work, and have proudly served for over 34 years!

We invite you to explore our website…..you will see we are a vibrant, vital and very busy part of the Clarkston community.
