Interact is a combination service and social club for young people ages 14 to 18. Each of the over 7,200 Interact clubs around the world is sponsored by a Rotary Club that provides guidance and inspiration. The youth clubs are self-governing and self-supporting, giving Interactors a chance to develop a range of leadership skills while learning the value of good teamwork. Interact stands for international action. International, because Interact clubs exist in 88 countries and 17 geographical areas. Many Interact projects cut geographical boundaries. Action because Interactors are doers, young people who want to solve problems, improve the quality of life, and make new friends--in their own community and throughout the world. Each Interact club carries out at least two service projects per year. One serves the school or community and the other furthers international understanding. Although Interactors work hard to make these projects succeed, they also have a good time meeting other teenagers and working together with their new friends. Add to that the feelings of great satisfactions that come from helping others. Another goal that every member should have: serious fun!
