Interact is Rotary’s service club for youth ages 12-18. Interact clubs can be community-based or school-based. Individual Rotary clubs sponsor Interact clubs and provide them with support and guidance, but each Interact club is self-governing and self-supporting. The goals of Interact include developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others, understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work, and advancing international understanding and goodwill.

Your Rotary club can support Interact by

  • Inviting local Interactors or your district Interact chair to speak at club meetings
  • Including local Interactors in a community service project
  • Sponsoring an Interact club (Schedule a meeting with local school administrators to get started.)
  • Holding a career day for Interactors
  • Attending Interact club meetings, and inviting Interactors to attend your Rotary club meetings
  • Assigning Rotary club members to mentor Interactors
