Welcome!

The Riverside Optimist Club was formed in 1946 to support youth in the community of Riverside, California.  This website was designed to inform those of the many programs we support and the activities we perform; and to expand our membership so we may provide even more to our community.  Our motto is, “Friend of Youth”, and we take enormous pride in doing all we can to make their childhood memorable.  The tabs on this page will outline the specifics of what we do and how you can become a part of one of the most successful service clubs in the Inland Empire.
