RISE to INTERACT CLUB
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting
The goal of international service through Interact is to encourage and foster the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of youth united in the ideal of service.
MEETINGS ARE THE 1ST AND 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 2:10pm IN THE MEDIA CENTER
Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:
- developing leadership skills and personal integrity
- Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
- Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
- Advancing international understanding and goodwill
As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
Projects for 2012/2013 include Harvest for the Hungry, Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics, Relay for Life for cancer research, Central Special School Holiday Party, a “Senior” Prom for the elderly, Adopt a Highway, and more.
