Interact

RETURN

Interact is a service and social club for young

people ages 12-18. Interact Clubs can be created within a school or any other youth organisation where they can provide many of the national curriculum requirements for the development of citizenship among our young people. 

 

Each club is sponsored

by a Rotary club, which guides the Interactors in developing local and international service

projects whilst the interactors run the club, elect officers and keep the books.

 

Interact derives its name from the words “international” and  action,”

reflecting the nature of an organization that exists in 110 countries around the world and promotes active service at home and abroad.

 

With almost 200,000 members

and more than 8,600 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. Clubs are encouraged to carry out local service projects that benefit the community or the school, such as sponsored swims and walks, bulb planting,

collecting food for the elderly and helping at Rotary events and countless others. Interactors also develop that extends

their understanding of the world and promotes goodwill.

Interact is a great way to meet people and make new friends. Interactors organise discos, sporting events, raffles, non uniform days and other activities as a way

to raise funds and have fun at the same time. Working together on car washes, bag packing, or environmental campaigns, club members get to know each other better and build many lasting friendships.
