How to Join:

If you like what you are seeing and would like to join the most dynamic youth-serving organization in the world, please join an Optimist Club today! You can see our district clubs by clicking on the Club tab or by emailing Ron Benson. We’ll put you in contact with someone who can help you become a “Friend of Youth.” Or you may filled out our  Membership Brochure and take it to the club of your choice.

Types of Membership

Club Member
As Members of Optimist Clubs, individuals have the opportunity to “Bring Out the Best in Kids” along with other like-minded citizens. Through an Optimist Club, volunteers can answer the needs of local youth by organizing meaningful service projects. You can obtain our Membership Brochure  here and take it to the club of your choice.

Friend of Optimists
Individuals can show their support of Optimist International by becoming Friends of Optimists. A Friend of Optimists may be someone who does not have an Optimist Club in their area, or they may not have time to dedicate to a local Optimist Club. Optimist Clubs can also bestow a Friend of Optimists membership on a community member who has shown great support for the Club. Here is the Friend of Optimist Brochure/Application.

30 and Under for $30
Optimist International is offering a one-year, introductory membership to civic-minded individuals. Any new traditional Member inclusive of 18-30 years of age who joins an Optimist Club will receive this special dues offer. For one year, young adults can enjoy the benefits of an Optimist Club with less of a financial impact! More Information.
