Our Story...

     The Rock Hill Central City Optimist Club is an all-volunteer civic organization. We are one of more than 3,400 Optimist Clubs throughout the world. We focus on the Rock Hill area, having served our community for 40 years. Each year our Club sponsors and participates in programs and activities that benefit more than 1,000 Rock Hill and York County young people!
     Our Club sponsors academic and community activities designed to give community youth a better chance to succeed in today's world.  Some activities include scholarships to help students attend college, mentoring students toward success in school and life, volunteering with Special Olympics, beautifying local homes through the Rolling in Rock Hill Home Painting Program, and recognizing and honoring students and educators.
     Although we participate in many projects and community service opportunities, Our monthly club meetings and other Social functions are an important part of our organization. A list of our current committees and programs can be found under the 'Programs' tab.
