Optimists bring out the best in youth, our communities, and in ourselves. See the activities we have planned to benefit the kids, the Des Moines Metro community, and each other!

What differentiates Optimist Clubs from any other volunteer opportunity is simple — OPTIMISM. And Optimists take their upbeat approach and work every day to make a difference for themselves and for the people around them. Optimists are people who believe that through positive action in their communities, they can create a better tomorrow. Join us today!

Our creed starts “Promise Yourself…” which relates to our mission statement: “By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids.” It’s all about making a difference, one child at a time, through a positive attitude, and a focus on our communities and our young people.
