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 CampaignInternet 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.

Governor's Message
I wish to thank each member of the 2015-2016 Nebraska District Optimist Team which includes Lt. Governors, District officers, Committee Chairs and members, club officers and members of all 44 clubs! Each of you has made a commitment to take the journey of your life in being an Optimist to bring out the best in our youth, our communities and ourselves. As we review the heritage of each Optimist Club, we are in awe of the many accomplishments of our members. We also realize that things are changing and we are challenged to grow so we can continue to provide meaningful activities, be successful in fundraising, enjoy fellowship and touch lives.
