The Glenview Mentoring Program is the brainchild of the Young Professionals Group, a segment of Glenview’s Chamber of Commerce. It’s a micro-mentoring program that invites young people to spend time learning about a specific profession, field of work, or line of business. Offering options for animal lovers, numbers people, the mechanically inclined, and more, the program is an investment in the community’s growth and well-being.

Positive Exposure = Opportunity
The Village of Glenview is a community that takes pride in supporting and investing in the stability and well-being of its inhabitants. There is no better way of doing this than helping to co-create a positive future for our youth.
Parents, counselors, and teachers who feel they might have a student in need of motivation and perspective, can search through a database of participating local business who will offer an hour or two of their time to help micro-mentor a young person from the community.

The Glenview Fire Department is an all hazards agency that responds to a wide variety of fire, technical rescue, and emergency medical calls in the Village of Glenview, the Village of Golf, and the Glenbrook Fire Protection district. The department operates from 5 fire stations responding to over 8000 calls annually.
A career in the fire service is an exciting one. What firefighters like most about the career is the wide variety of emergency and non-emergency incidents that they respond to. From one day to the next personnel never know what type of emergency they may be called to. It could be as complex as a structure fire, hazardous materials incident, auto accident, heart attack, or trench rescue. The department responds to other, less hazardous incidents like smoke and odor investigations, power related problems, and carbon monoxide investigations.
What does it take to become a firefighter? You have to attend a fire academy and become a state certified firefighter prior to working on shift. Once hired, you will also train to become a certified paramedic, a program that takes approximately two years to complete. When that is complete you have the opportunity to take many different certification classes offered throughout the area to advance your career.
If this challenge is something that interests you please contact the Glenview Fire Department administration office to meet with a mentor.
