About Us



Retirement can come too early for many people who want and are able to remain active. PROBUS clubs are organizations for retirees who want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests. Today, there are over 400,000 members in approximately 4,000 PROBUS clubs worldwide.


PROBUS clubs provide opportunities to meet with others with similar interests. Meeting new people, making new friends, discovering new interests are just some of the advantages of being a PROBUS member.
