Why should I join Interact?2018-11-27T23:59:03-07:00

Interact opens doors to a global network that facilitates action towards lasting change, surrounded and supported by Interacts that carry your same passion for service. Interactors are given the opportunities to grow in leadership, develop a global understanding of current issues, and nurture lifelong friendships. Additionally, Interactors gain valuable knowledge by working closely with Rotarians. Take the first step in your Interact journey with excitement and pride — you are already creating change in the world, community, and yourself!

The skills I learned, whether it was time management, event planning, or coordinating with people regionally was amazing, but the skills it gave me as a person truly changed my life. It gave me the confidence I didn’t have in myself back when I was in high school. It opened my eyes to a community that wanted to make a difference in the world. It gave me some of the best friendships and helped me create new ones. Without Interact or DC, I’m not sure who I would be today. It made my high school experience special and my only regret is that I wish I got involved with it sooner, instead of my last year of high school.”

Celine H, Interact Club of Clayton Valley Charter High School

In my experience, I learned that Rotary is an international organization that is much grander than it’s component Interact. I never realized how impactful and expansive Rotary is.”

Paige O, Interact Club of Ygnacio Valley High School

I originally joined because I really loved the way the organization of Rotary/Interact was done and I wanted to be a part of planning and organizing this amazing opportunity for students in my area. I ended up making several new friends, meeting many new people and most importantly [Interact] gave me a way to show my communication skills, which will help me later in my life for sure. I think that having Interact is a great way not only to get students involved in community service, but to come together and unite kids in order to achieve one certain goal, and I believe that Interact does this in a way that other clubs don’t.”
