Shawano Optimist Club
Shawano Optimist Club like its parent, Optimist International is an association dedicated to “Bringing Out the Best in Kids”. Adult volunteers join to conduct positive service projects in their communities aimed at providing a helping hand to youth. With their upbeat attitude, Optimist Club members help empower young people to be the best they can be.
Our Motto is friend of youth and we seek members to make that happen, whether through volunteering for youth activities or helping at different functions to raise funds for our operation.

“Providing positive options and opportunities for our youth has become a growing concern for many people and communities. This is where groups like the Optimist can make a difference and have a large impact. Positive opportunities and options for our youth is what being an Optimist is all about. For these reasons, I am proud to say I am an Optimist.”
