Clubs in Zone 5

Welcome to Zone 5 ~ Alberta Capital Region

Zone 5 comprises Optimist clubs in Edmonton, Leduc, and St. Albert. Optimist clubs run many youth oriented community service projects and Optimist International Youth Programs. Many of those projects and programs focus on youth safety including internet safety, sports and fitness, fighting childhood cancer, and helping those youth and families who are in need.

Optimist Clubs are autonomous, self-governed, community-based service organizations that raise their own funds and decide how to spend that money to support the youth in their own community. Clubs can design their own projects, sponsor other youth oriented organizations or programs, or run any of the Optimist International sanctioned youth programs.

If you would like to become an Optimist, I encourage you to contact the Club President of the Optimist Club nearest to you. We even have Optmist Clubs for Youth where the youth organize and run their own fund raising and community service projects.
