Interact clubs

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

Sponsor an Interact club.


Invite Interact members to attend a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards event to connect with the next generation of community leaders. RYLA is a leadership development program that is organized at the club, district, or multidistrict level.

International connections

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.

Youth Exchange  

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.
