About Us

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.

Why we do it

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.


How does it work?

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.

Biographical Info

Lynne Stiefel is Communications Manager for the Village of Glenview.

She grew up in Skokie. Her interest in communications/journalism began in college, when she joined the student radio station at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since then she worked professionally in radio, television and newspapers in Wichita, Tulsa, Houston, Boston and the Chicago area. She joined the Village in 2011, after having covered the Glenview beat for Pioneer Press newspapers.

She believes communications is a field that involves finding creative ways to share information helpful to people. The best preparation is to get a well-rounded education – where you know a little bit about everything, but always need to ask questions to find out more.
