WHAT IS INTERACT?
A club to take action, build international understanding, and make new friends around the world.
Interact is a service club for youth ages 12-18 that strives to inspire, develop leadership
skills, and provide a fun opportunity to connect with other youth focussed on providing
service both locally and internationally. Sponsored by Rotary Clubs, Interact Clubs are
either school, community, or online based, and are self-governing and self-supporting. They
host multiple events within the school year to volunteer, raise funds and promote
awareness for local and international causes. The term Interact, is derived from "inter"
for international, and "act" for action. Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon
with 342,953 young people involved around the world.
