Z & GOLDEN Z CLUBS

WHAT IS Z & GOLDEN Z CLUBS

The Zonta Club of Hong Kong East established two Z Clubs, the DGS Z- Club (Diocesan Girls’ School) and SPSS Z-Club (St. Paul’s Secondary School), in the early nineties; and two Golden Z Clubs, the HKUST Golden Z Club (HK University of Science and Technology) and the City U Golden Z-Club (City University), at the beginning of the new Millennium.

OBJECTS

  1. To serve the school with which it is affiliated
  2. To serve the community
  3. To provide career guidance and to encourage leadership qualities in colleges and universities
  4. To promote fellowship and better understanding among all people of the world

PURPOSE

Young people are given a chance to interact with experienced sponsors, and they work together to better their societies and the world by gaining an understanding of their schools and communities and by developing an international awareness. “Future Leaders Building A Better World Today Through Service and Advocacy” is the motto for the Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs.

BENEFITS

The Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs provide opportunities for young people to develop leadership skills and explore career alternatives through service. Supporting community service projects is one way for Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs’ members to develop the necessary competencies as future leaders.

 

Students joining a Z Club or a Golden Z Club benefit by working together in planning, organizing and participating in 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 experiencing personal accomplishment.

It is always a good opportunity for students to develop their leadership, organization skills, people skills and widen your network and exposure.
