MHS Interact Club

Interact is a service club for young people ages 14-18. Sponsored by local Rotary clubs, Interact clubs give young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends.

Interactors and Rotarians are partners in service. Rotarians mentor promising youth in their communities. Interactors bring new energy to a Rotary club, inspire fresh ideas for service, increase support of projects, and help develop future Rotarians. Sponsoring Rotary clubs provide support and guidance, but Interact clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.

Interact stands for international action. The first club was chartered in 1962 at Melbourne High School, FL, USA. Today there are more than 11,400 clubs in over 125 countries with an estimated membership of 250,000 youth worldwide.

Every year, Interactors and Rotarians celebrate the charter of the first Interact club during the week of 5 November. Together they participate in a variety of activities to increase Interact awareness in their communities.
