Interact is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young people ages 12-18. The program gives its members (Interactors) an opportunity to participate in meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills, meeting new friends and having fun.

Through Interact, thousands of dollars and man-hours are spent furthering the ideal of Service Above Self. Click the underlined link to go to the Rotary International Interact website pages where you'll find more information, training materials and forms.


The District Interact Conference in March 1-3, 2019 is the highlight of the year and a time for clubs to come together and celebrate the accomplishment of Interact objectives:

  • Recognize and develop constructive leadership and personal integrity.
  • Encourage and practice thoughtfulness of and helpfulness to others.
  • Create an awareness of the importance of home and family.
  • Build respect for the rights of others based on recognition of the worth of each individual.
  • Emphasize acceptance of individual responsibility as the basis of personal success, community improvement and group achievement.
  • Recognize the dignity and value of all useful occupations as opportunities to serve society.
  • Open avenues of personal and group action leading to the advancement of international understanding and goodwill toward all peoples.
