Junior Optimist Octagon International - JOOI Clubs

SWIS District JOOI Club Programs

Created in 1988, Junior Optimist Octagon International (JOOI) has quickly become one of the largest and most active youth service organizations in the world. JOOI members represent the times well, by making their communities better - one service project at a time. With more than 16,000 members in over 650 communities, JOOI members are constantly working to promote positive change in their communities. Their motto is "Kids Helping Kids." Each JOOI Club is governed autonomously, with its own local leadership. By keeping that leadership local, JOOI Clubs empower young people to make positive decisions to serve fellow youths and their community. By encouraging involvement and awareness of local issues, JOOI Clubs cultivate the leaders of tomorrow. 

JOOI is recognized by the National Association of Secondary School Principals and offers three different age groups: Alpha Clubs (elementary), Junior Clubs (middle school) and Octagon Clubs (high school). For more information about JOOI and youth volunteering opportunities, click here.
