Women Returning to the Workforce Award
The Zonta Club of Kenmore has presented a Woman Returning to the Workforce Award to a pharmacy technician student at the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology. This student is a 22 year old high school graduate who has gone back to school to earn this certification in order to secure a better paying position on her way to achieving her full potential. The financial award will help her with transportation costs to and from school and her internship. This is the kind of help that is difficult to receive through community resources and Zonta Club of Kenmore is pleased to be able to help alleviate one obstacle among many for this student
16 Days of Activism
In preparation for the 16 Days of Activism, the Zonta Club of Kenmore has its banner on display in front of Mount St. Mary Academy on Delaware Avenue in Tonawanda. The school leadership provided us with the opportunity to address a student body assembly on the meaning of these 16 Days and what they each can do to educate themselves and others about violence against women. The Kenmore Zonta Club is also working on a project with the school staff to help students create short videos about healthy relationships. These videos will be shared with the student body and discussed in their classes.
