As Friends of Youth, the mission of the North Pensacola Optimist Club is to promote Optimism as a philosophy of life by contributing to the lives of its members and the youth of Escambia County; to actively promote Optimistic membership, recruitment & retention; to provide programs to youth that inspire respect for the law, promote patriotism, encourage participation in government and civic affairs; and that provide opportunities that develop and improve one's self as an Optimist for life.

Since 1963, the Optimist Club of North Pensacola has worked to help young people in Pensacola and the Florida Panhandle.

Each year we donate more than $17,500 to youth programs in our local area.
