Past Projects

Brighton Optimist Club


Optimist Clubs are chartered to serve the youth of their communities. Sometimes that can be a pretty large area. Most Clubs participate in Optimist International's signature programs like the Oratorical Contest, which provides young people the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills and a chance to win college scholarships; the new Internet Safety Program, designed to inform both young people and their parents of potential online dangers and offering safe practice tips while online; and the Childhood Cancer Campaign, created in 2001 to be "the leading force to rid the world of childhood cancer". Clubs also conduct their own local service programs.
