Interact is a club for young people ages 12-18 who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community that they care most about. Through Interact, you put on hands-on service projects, make international connections, develop leadership skills & have a blast.
HOW DOES AN INTERACT CLUB CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE? Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps your school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Service projects are an effective way for you to take action at home and abroad, connect with other young leaders, and get members excited about your club. You can find ideas and tips for successful projects in the Interact Handbook.
HOW DO I JOIN AN INTERACT CLUB? First, ask your friends or a guidance counselor if there’s already an Interact club at your school. Look online for local Interact clubs in your community. You can also contact a local Rotary club to find out if they sponsor an Interact club. Contact the club to find out about its next meeting, service project, or social event. Watch “Students Making a Difference,” to see how young people, like you, are changing the world through Interact.
WHAT IF THERE ISN’T AN INTERACT CLUB IN MY SCHOOL OR COMMUNITY? You can start one! Contact a local Rotary club to learn how to start your own Interact club. You can find everything you need to organize and manage a club in the Interact Handbook. To get started, you'll need an advisor from your sponsoring club, a faculty advisor (for school-based clubs), and a few strong leaders to help organize your club, grow membership, and carry out successful projects.
