Participate in one of Zonta’s longest-running student’s programs by helping the Zonta Woodstock charter Z Clubs or a Golden Z club!

Clubs such as these can provide young adults in Oxford County with the tools, information and guidance they need to impact the world and improve the lives of women and girls everywhere.

A Z Club is associated with a high school while a Golden Z Club is aligned to a community college or university.  Zonta Woodstock acts as a sponsor to charter the club, registers it with Zonta International, and acts to establish and mentor the club.
