Welcome to Farmington/Farmington Hills Jr. Optimists!
Junior Optimist International is an all-inclusive youth organization sponsored by Optimist International. Our organization embodies the Optimist Creed, which motivates us to embrace positive values like optimism and respect for ourselves and others while engaging in community service. Our mission is to use a passion for making a difference to reach out to other people wishing to make a difference too.
A Unique History
Junior Optimist International was created to enable youth to provide service in their communities. The vision was to become the most prominent youth service organization in the world. Junior Optimist reached the international level in 1989 and has continued to grow to over 15,000 Members in over 500 Clubs. The numbers are still rising thanks to youth, who want to make a difference in their community.
Currently we have clubs in the Farmington Public Schools at elementary, middle and high schools. Check the calendar for a list of the events.
