Anchorage Zontians have a long, proud tradition of finding a need and filling it. Applause and recognition aren’t sought, rather the satisfaction of making a lasting commitment to the improvement of our community is all our members want. Our service history is diverse and we continue to surprise ourselves with new and interesting projects.
Hiland Mountain Bridges to Success
Highland Mountain Bridge to Success is intensive employment training for inmates who are within six months of being released. The Zonta Club of Anchorage has supported the program since its inception in 2005.
Every year we sponsor the gift bags given to the graduates of the program. Members shop for and then assemble the bags which include a variety of items that the women have requested. One year the graduates were given water bottles at their request in support of the running program recently started.
In 2013, we received recognition for our years of support from the DOJ and Judge Dana Fabe.

The Alaska Women’s Hall of Fame is a collaborative project of the Zonta Club of Anchorage, the Alaska Women’s Network, YWCA Anchorage, the Alaska Women’s Political Caucus, the Anchorage Women’s Commission, the University of Alaska Anchorage and a large number of interested Alaska women.
