North Okanagan Optimist Club chartered in 2011.... the first Optimist Club in the BC interior

An Optimist Club is made up of men and women who want to positively impact their community.

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 have been "Bringing Out the Best in Kids" since 1919.   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).
