Overtown Optimist Club
Our mission is to position youth in Overtown and surrounding communities for positive outcomes through sports, academic enrichment, and mentoring
Enrich, Empower, Develop
Overtown Optimist Club offers youth ages 4 - 17 access to sports, educational, and mentorship programs and opportunities all year round.
We believe in the power of practical instruction in life skills, leadership development and extracurricular activities to enable and empower our youth.
We owe the success of this club to the kindness, passion, and giving nature of the Overtown community.
Many of our staff and volunteers grew up in this community, played on OOC teams as kids, and are passionate about paying it forward.
We have served over 5,000 youth within nearly three decades to enable them to improve their life skills and become respected citizens in society.
We have achieved this through increasing educational and athletic opportunities and mentorship.
