Student Clubs

Zonta International believes young people are critical to achieving gender equality and ending violence against women and girls around the world. To truly change the lives of women and girls globally now and for generations to come, we must invest in youth development and mentor young leaders for gender equality. Through the Z and Golden Z Club program, Zontians work to bring Zonta International’s mission to empower women through service and advocacy to students around the world and to stimulate new and meaningful student-led service and advocacy projects.

Z clubs are formed on secondary school campuses or in communities, and Golden Z clubs are formed on college and university campuses. These student clubs are designed to provide opportunities for young adults to develop communication and leadership skills, explore career alternatives, and increase their international awareness and understanding through service. Zonta clubs sponsor Z and Golden Z clubs, and provide students with the resources, information and guidance they need to improve the world around them. Z and Golden Z club students then plan, organize and participate in unique activities that give them hands-on experiences in improving the lives of others at both a local and international level.

We invite you to join this growing global movement of students working for gender equality and an end to violence against women and girls worldwide. Join or start a Z or Golden Z club today.

Z Club Spiru-Haret Prahova impacts local community with variety of projects

The Z Club Spiru-Haret Prahova in Romania has been actively working to make a difference in their community.

In September, at the start of the school year, the club supported a local Zonta project, “Ajuta-le sa zambeasca,” (Help them smile), which benefits underprivileged children. The students obtained a donation of approximately US$450 from a stationary company consisting of school supplies that were packed into 40 kits for the children.

The Z club also has a creative workshop, where members hand-make a variety of items such as greeting cards, decorations, clay, wood, paintings, toys and more. In October, they made an exhibit where members of the Zonta Club of Valea Prahovei, visiting members from the Zonta Club of Mannheim and locals had the opportunity to buy items. They also held a workshop on 12-13 November for 30 children on clay modeling and painting. The students raise funds with these two events to buy more materials.

These two projects will continue over the winter holidays, and the Z club will also collect donations for 100 women and children—of which, 30 percent are victims of violence—in their local community.

Additionally, the Z Club Spiru-Haret Prahova supported the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign with a charity concert it helped organize with the Zonta Club of Valea Prahovei. Students sold 100 tickets to the event, which raised funds for victims of violence.
