Interact clubs bring together young people aged between 12-18 years of age to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Rotary’s most significant motto of ‘service above self’. The benefits of belonging to an interact club include:

  • Taking action to make a difference in your school and community
  • Discover new cultures and promote international understanding
  • Become a leader in your school and community
  • Have fun while learning and make new friends from around the world
