We encourage young women in our communities to realise their potential in education and encourage leadership and organisational skills. These Z Club programmes run in local highschools.

Zonta Club of Christchurch-Canterbury sponsor a Z Club at Avonside Girls High School.

We do this by providing role models and opportunities for the girls to hear how other women have formulated their careers, overcome obstacles and identified opportunities which have led them to success. Girls are encouraged to apply for the Young People in Public Affairs Award which recognises community involvement, thus celebrating their success and providing peer role models.
