Since Clubs are autonomous, Optimists have the flexibility to serve the youth of their community in any way they see fit. Please share your Club ideas with others.

One of the best reasons for being an Optimist in the SWIS DISTRICT is participating in numerous events throughout the year. Some of these projects and activities are for personal enjoyment (Youth Activities), while others are designed to provide needed assistance to others in their community, our state, or even our nation (Community Service).

JOOI Clubs provide a cool way for you and your friends to help solve real problems facing your hometown. JOOI links Members of all Optimist JOOI Clubs throughout North America and around the world. JOOI Clubs perform community service projects just like adult Optimist Clubs. All JOOI Clubs share the same mission, “Kids Helping Kids,” and students like you organize and run the Clubs.
