Start A New Optimist Club


The North Okanagan Optimist Club would like to support your community in starting your very own Optimist Club.

We believe that having an Optimist Club in your community builds better lives and increases personal development. By uniting together for one common goal using our imagination, our hearts and our skills, adults impact a positive influence.

By volunteering within your Optimist Club promotes leadership, improves neighborhoods, supports local economies, provides special projects all to "Bring Out The Best In Kids"!

Just think for a moment about what your community needs that is children and teen oriented. It might be a new playground; or a focus on a specific sport like golf or curling; or simply that your community lacks a constructive formula to help the youth in your area.

As a member of the Pacific Northwest District of Optimist International, which includes Idaho, Oregon, Washington ,Alaska and British Columbia, if you live in one of these areas, we would like to help you get started. This district has over 2000 members and growing and as your neighbor and friends we are anxious to assist you with setting up and staring your new club. We will help you find programs and most importantly connect with other people that share similar interests.

Simply send us an email to:, and we will connect with you and your community.
