    About Us

    Chartered in January 1960, the Optimist Club of Malibu’s original mission was to provide positive role models and mentors to the young men and women of Malibu. As our community has grown, many young people have benefited from the efforts to of the club to support them in their community service, college scholarships, essay contests, oral competitions and activities like Little League, Malibu High School sports, and Excellence in Education.

    Today’s motto, “Friend of Youth” embraces the inclusive nature of our local community and of our club. We still continue to serve the children of Malibu but now include the youth in Camp Miller in the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains as well as a co-sponsor of the 100+ year old Optimist Youth Home in Eagle Rock, CA.
