since 1993

The Overtown Optimist Club (OOC) was founded in 1993 as a community based organization designed to help inner city youth through sports. Since then, it has evolved into an organization that provides an array of services to the community. These services include college tours, mentorship programs and community workshops that exposes our children to experiences that spans beyond sports. We aim to keep our youth positively occupied in events that develops leadership skills, encourages academic success and expands potential.
