Interact is the youth organization of Rotary International for 14- to 19-year-olds. As with Rotary’s older colleagues, the organization consists of a large number of clubs that meet every two weeks and organize projects to promote the common good several times a year.
The idea of service to others is central to Interact. Through their relief efforts, Interacters learn how rewarding humanitarian aid is, but also leadership skills and responsibility, as well as the purpose of international understanding.
