Interact club is a service club for youth ages 12 to 18 and is part of Rotary International, the world’s first service club organization. The parent international organization consists of over 30,000 clubs around the world and boasts more than million business and professional leaders as members. Individual Rotary clubs sponsor the youth component, Interact clubs, by providing guidance and support. The first Interact club was founded in 1962. Interact involves as many as 200,000 youth through more than 10,000 clubs in 109 countries and geographical area. Each club varies according to its membership makeup. The Interact clubs are self-supporting and self-governing, although they receive direction and minimal, if any, financial support from the sponsoring Rotary club. All Interact clubs sponsor a minimum of two community service projects annually. One project should support an understanding of international goodwill. Another service project should benefit the local community or school. The club meets at least twice monthly. Active members must maintain a 60% attendance record.
A member of the supporting Rotary club, Sean Mill, serves as our adviser to the student organization and attends related meetings. The Rotarian adviser, Sean Mill, also serves as the liaison between the Interact club and the Rotary club. Funds for service projects are raised through club activities, and may or may not be supplemented by minimal club dues. Benefits of membership in an Interact club include the opportunity to network with other members both locally and internationally. Members also have opportunities to develop leadership skills, understand the importance of responsibility and promote international awareness. Other benefits include learning the importance of serving others, showing respect and developing personal integrity. to Contact Sean, click on Contact Us and select “interact advisor” as the recipient
