Liberty City Optimist Club of Florida is a small component in mass poverty-stricken environment. Our goal at Liberty City is to impact the youth in the most positive way. Although, we receive funds and they appear plentiful, we lack funds to produce services in many areas. Kids who have filtered through our program is less likely to drop out of Highschool because we instill the importance of education. The graduation rate in Liberty City area is less than 50%, approximately 9% of the community goes to college. The true work of Liberty City Optimist Club, the heart of what we do lies fittingly at the center of our goal. We strive to bring the best out of kids, an environment that allows them to release those troubles outside, be a kid and have fun.
