What is Interact? 

Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with other young people in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. 
While Rotary clubs sponsor them, Interact clubs are largely self-sustaining, requiring little or no financial support from your club.

Each year, Interact clubs complete community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:

  • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
  • Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
  • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
  • Advancing international understanding and goodwill

Interact's name is a combination of the words international and action. With clubs in over 120 countries and geographical areas, Interact is truly an international phenomenon. Interact's global youth network is dedicated to community and international service. Every Interact club project, great or small, has a lasting impact on society worldwide.

Do you want to:

  • Reach out to a community in need?
  • Work with teens in another country to develop a service project?
  • Learn about the customs and culture of a faraway place?
  • Serve your local community?
