What Optimist Clubs Do

What Optimist Clubs Do

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.
Optimist International officially sponsors several International Programs: the Childhood Cancer Campaign, Internet Safety, the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships and the organization’s scholarship contests (Essay Contest, Oratorical Contest and Communication Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing). In addition, Optimist International encourages involvement in several other community activities:

Respect for Law/Promotion of Non-Violence
Youth Appreciation
Youth Safety
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.

Some of the ways the Tucker Optimist Club helps the kids in Tucker:

Holiday food baskets

Oratorical Contests and Essay Contests

Tucker Day Parade

“Smart Lunch — Smart Kids”  and “Lunch Buddies”

Our big fundraiser is a barbecue we have twice a year!

Come join us the 1st and third Thursdays at 7:00 PM at Matthew Cafeteria.   Let’s do more for the kids of Tucker! Bring your ideas and join us for great food, great fellowship, great cause, great fun with a great club!
