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.
