The Optimist Club of Glenview is a volunteer organization of more than 40 adult men and women motivated by the desire to give back to our community. We have chosen the Optimist Club, a local service organization affiliated with Optimist International, as our way to help the youth in Glenview. Our members have generated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help sponsor sports teams, counseling programs, school clubs and programs, college scholarships and much more. Our motto is "Friend of Youth". The Optimists have done fundraising to help the children in Glenview for over 55 years!
If you're looking for the opportunity to make new friends, experience personal growth and enrichment through leadership opportunities, and, most of all, the sense of satisfaction derived from helping others, we are the organization for you.
Optimist Clubs are serious about "Bringing Out the Best in Kids" and do their part through community service programs. Since each Optimist Club is autonomous and run by members in their community, Optimists have the unique flexibility to serve the youth of their community in any way they see fit. Optimist Clubs see a need in their community and react to it.
