With the motto of “Future Leaders Building A Better World Today Through Service and Advocacy”, Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs provide the unique opportunity for youths to develop a global awareness through interacting with experienced sponsors and exploring the local and international communities around them.


The Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs provide opportunities for young people to develop leadership skills and explore career alternatives through acts of service.

Students joining a Z Club or a Golden Z Club benefit by working together in planning, organizing, and participating in service activities. The most rewarding benefit that Z Clubs and Golden Z clubs offer is the satisfaction of giving. There is an overwhelming pride in devoting one’s time to others and celebrating accomplishments together.
