What is Interact?

Interact is an international organization of service that fosters leadership and responsible citizenship, and promotes international understanding and peace. Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. The name “Interact” was created by combining the words “international” and “action.” Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary Clubs and Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary Clubs, they govern and support themselves and are included in Rotary International’s “Youth Services” Avenue of Service.


Living by the motto ``Service Above Self,`` Interactors embrace service and welcome it into their everyday lives. Through acts of service, Interact District 5170 empowers change and inspires those who don't already have the love for service.


Interact goes beyond the boundaries that define a club-- it is a support system and source of inspiration for a diverse group of people from all across the world. It serves as a flame, igniting the passion for service amongst teenagers as they grow alongside those that they are able to call their family.


``If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.`` -- Isaac Newton. District 5170 and the Interactors within it grow and learn from the past so that we can create a better future.
