What is JOOI?

JOOI is an all-inclusive service-learning organization affiliated with adult Optimist clubs worldwide. Northside High School's JOOI club was chartered in 2001 under the wing of the Noon Optimist Club of Warner Robins. It embraces the positive values of optimism, respect for self and others, and independence of mind through the unlimited opportunities of community service and sponsorship by Optimist International ("Bringing Out the Best in Kids.") The National Association of Secondary School Principals has added JOOI to its National Advisory List of Contests and Activities, which makes JOOI a significant school activity on the same level with National Honor Society and Student Councils.
