Interact gives students ages 12-18 the chance to make a real difference while having fun. Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding.


   Clubs meet at least twice a month and are sponsored by their local Rotary club. When you sponsor an Interact club, you’re helping young people:

  • connect with community leaders

  • develop leadership skills

  • make international connections

  • discover more opportunities to connect with Rotary, including Rotaract, RYLA, and Youth Exchange

From attending international events to joining a Rotary Youth Exchange, you’ll find a variety of ways to connect globally through Interact.




Celebrate your club’s global impact by getting involved in:


  • World Interact Week

  • Interact Video Contest


Follow Interact on Facebook and YouTube to find more opportunities to get involved.




Help young people explore new cultures and customs by encouraging their participation in a Rotary Youth Exchange. Students can choose between a short term or long term exchange. It’s a powerful way to promote global understanding and peace.
