Personal Growth & Involvement (P.G.I.) Program
There are many benefits to becoming an Optimist. And since "Bringing
Out the Best in Kids" is the consensus top benefit, the organization’s
Personal Growth & Involvement (P.G.I.) program ranks a cool second.
Where else can you become a more knowledgeable volunteer?
The P.G.I. program offers every Optimist member the opportunity to learn
more about Optimism while advancing through 10 levels of involvement, leadership
growth and achievement.
The P.G.I. program will make you a better volunteer. Through communication
training, self-development modules and other personal growth activities,
Optimist International is giving you a fantastic opportunity to continue
to learn and grow into a leader.
