The Optimist Club of Etobicoke 

The Optimist Club of Etobicoke is a community service organization dedicated to our mission:  "By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in youth, in our communities and in ourselves". We’ve been working with children and youth in Etobicoke and the city of Toronto since 1959. Optimist clubs are members of a worldwide service organization dedicated to serving the youth in their communities.

The purpose of the Optimist Club of Oakville is to develop “Optimism” as a philosophy of life and to aid and encourage the youth of our community. 

We are a group of people that care about youth. Our members include people from every aspect of our community: business, civil service, social, educational, cultural, retirees and even young people. The club is open to all adults. 

Are you in good standing in the community, have integrity and a heart for serving youth? Come join us! We’d love to meet you as our guest at our meetings on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month.
