The Optimist Club of Glenview 

The Optimist Club of Glenview is a community service organization dedicated to "Bringing out the best in children". We’ve been working with kids in Glenview since 1961. Optimist clubs are members of a worldwide service organization dedicated to serving the youth in their communities.

The purpose of the Optimist Club is to develop “Optimism” as a philosophy of life and to aid and encourage the youth of our community. 

We are a group of people that care about kids. Our members include people from every aspect of our community: business, civil service, social, educational, cultural, retirees and even young people. The club is open to all adults. 

Are you in good standing in the community, have integrity and a heart for serving kids? Come join us! We’d love to meet you as our guest at our weekly meetings.



Check out our latest fundraiser, our 2016 Golf Outing! We had a lot of fun, and raised good money for the youth of Glenview!
