The Bloomfield Hills Optimist Club is a Friend of Youth, "Bringing Out the Best in Kids" in everything we do. We team with community partners to provide support, guidance, and advocacy to youth in our community through programs like Children's Holiday Wish, Respect for Education, and many others. Our upbeat attitude helps empower young people to be the best that they can be. The Optimist Creed Promise Yourself To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Join us for one of our weekly meetings. We host speakers from the community we serve, often focusing on our youth population and concerns they face each day, both long and short term. Contact us with one of the methods listed to RSVP - we sometimes take field trips to visit and enrich youth in our communities or learn about cultural gems or resources available to us all. Otherwise, our weekly meetings take place at the Centerpoint Marriott near Opdyke and I-75 each Thursday morning beginning at 7:30 AM.

Mission: By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids.

A 5K run/walk is coming up next month in Bloomfield Hills to benefit two local nonprofits that improve the lives of children.

Join us this Thursday for a fellow Optimist, Maggie Razdar, founder of Kids Standard Magazine. The publication is written entirely by kids and features their original poetry, short stories, essays and academic research. Each month,10,000 copies are printed and distributed to students in the Orion and Clarkson school districts. The goal is to promote an early love of literacy. Studies have shown that students who develop a love of reading earlier are four times more likely to graduate from high school. See you at 7:30 am at Auburn Hills Marriott Pontiac At Centerpoint!
