Interact Club

nteract is a service and social club for young people ages 12-18. Each club is sponsored by a Rotary club, which guides the Interactors in developing local and international service projects. Interact derives its name from the words “international” and “action,” reflecting the nature of an organization that exists in 143 countries and promotes active service at home and abroad. With over 495,880 members in 21,560 clubs worldwide, Interact provides a powerful force of youthful enthusiasm and energetic service.

Interact clubs are self-governing and self-supporting, offering many opportunities for members to develop valuable leadership and teamwork skills. Each club carries out local service projects that benefit its community or school, such as fundraisers for a variety of causes, blood drives, benefit concerts, and visits to nursing homes, orphanages, and homeless shelters. Interactors also develop international service projects that expand their understanding of the world and promote goodwill.

Interact is a great way to meet people and make new friends. Interactors organize dances, sporting events, and other activities as a way to raise funds and have fun at the same time. Working together on car washes, food drives, or clean-up campaigns, club members get to know each other better and build many lasting friendships. At Interact conferences for clubs in a specific area, members have a chance to expand their network of Interact friendships and share ideas for projects and other club activities.

Interact also offers a chance to make friends across borders and oceans. Through service projects with Interact clubs in other countries, Interactors learn about different cultures, promote goodwill between nations, and sometimes even travel abroad to work with their international service partners.
