The Paso Robles Optimist Club mentors children and youth seeking leadership skills through the formation of a JOOI (Junior Optimist Octagon International) Club at Almond Acres Charter School. JOOI members are constantly working to promote positive change in their community. We are planning to develop another JOOI club in our town soon. Come, be a part of supporting our youth and community
As we work together, we have tremendous fun. There are opportunities to increase one's leadership skills through the Optimist International PGI program. Paso Robles' most valuable community service club is always delighted to welcome new members who have strong ties to the community and an eagerness to help bring out the best in kids.
