Established in 1948, the Z Club program is one of Zonta International’s longest-running programs. Z clubs help high school students develop leadership skills, promote career exploration and encourage members to participate in community, school and international service projects.
With the help of experienced Zonta sponsors, who provide resources, information and guidance, Z club members (high school students) work to improve their society and the world. Z club organize and participate in unique activities designed to meet the needs of members, their schools and the community, while emphasizing an international outlook and strong international relations.
In July of 2012 a Z Club charter was presented to students at Triumph High School. The club focuses on activities that emphasize elimination of domestic violence. The Z Club meets the first and third Wednesday each month during the school year. Zonta members mentor students, sponsor community service projects and raise funds for service organizations. A Z Club student representative reports on club projects at the general meeting of the Zonta Club of Cheyenne.
