Welcome to the Club Optimiste francophone de Durham's website!

The Club Optimiste francophone de Durham is a non-profit organization devoted to "Bringing out the Best in Kids". Adult volunteers join Optimist clubs to conduct positive community service programs and projects aimed at providing a helping hand to youth. Because members of an Optimist club smile at life, they help empower young people to be the best that they can be.
