Community Service Programs are the ways in which the GFWC Zwaanendael Women's Club serves and improves our community.  


Following the guidelines of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), these programs focus on issues that have a daily effect on our community and are the backbone of our service.


Members are encouraged to work on programs where their unique skills can be best utilized. Suggestions for a new event or activity are always welcome.  

Our current Community Service Programs fall into the following 6 areas.  (Click on each area to learn more.)

         Arts and Culture


        Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention

             (GFWC Signature Program)

        Education and Libraries/HOBY (Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Program)

        Health and Wellness

        Civic Engagement and Outreach
