About Zonta Club of Pikes Peak Area
Zonta Club of Pikes Peak Area is a Colorado Springs area club that is a part of Zonta International, an organization that focuses on empowering women through service and advocacy.
Mission Statement: To advance the status of women and serve our community through local and international contributions, and to achieve personal and professional growth in a nurturing and supportive environment.
As one of the first service organizations to understand women’s unique role in shaping women’s lives in the 20th century, Zonta International began working for economic, social, educational, legal, health and political equality for women in Buffalo, NY in 1919.
In 1949, The Zonta Club of the Pikes Peak Area was established to mirror the goals of Zonta International locally.
Since that time, The Zonta Club of the Pikes Peak Area has devoted funds to scholarships for women returning to the workforce as well as to high school seniors seeking to further their education in Technology, Public Affairs or Aeronautics and other highly technical fields. Many funds as well as hands-on service hours and mentorships have been dedicated to TESSA, Intercept, Full-Circle, and support of the locally-placed Liberian refugees.
