To serve the needs of young persons in the communities represented by club members by providing scholarships, financial grants and mentoring to individuals and youth-serving organizations.
The overall objective of the Wilmette Optimist Club is to bring out the best in kids. We do this in a variety of ways – by providing scholarships based on community service and academic achievement by high school seniors and financially challenged youth, by supporting youth-serving nonprofit organizations and by participation in programs of Optimist International.
