About 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. The Interact Club is sponsored by Rotary International, which has chartered 15,000 clubs spanning 145 countries. Interact club members create lifelong bonds while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. The name “Interact” was created by combining the words “international” and “action.” 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.

Interact's History

Interact has over 342,953 youth in more than 14,911 clubs in over 145 countries and geographical areas. Brazil, India, the Philippines, and the United States have the highest number of interact clubs. The first interact club was at Melbourne High School in 1962. It had 23 members to begin with and was created by Harold T. Thomas.
