Interact

Interact is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young people ages 14- 18. The program gives young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends.

Through service activities, Interactors learn the importance of:

...Developing leadership skills and personal integrity;

...Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others;

...Advancing international understanding and goodwill.

 

Relationship Between Interact And Rotary

Interactors help with projects organized by their sponsoring Rotary clubs. In the developing world, Interact Clubs have played a major role in PolioPlus-Rotary International's massive effort to immunize all children against the polio. Interactors help by publicizing the availability and importance of polio vaccination for children throughout the community and by performing a variety of vital tasks on immunization day.

Sponsoring Rotary Club helps Interact Club by:

 

-Select representatives to attend every Interact Club meeting

-Undertake joint projects with the Interact Club

-Offer guidance and support on active service projects

-Provide the Interact Club with financial support if needed
