Mission/Purpose: Interact Club members strive to address needs within their local community as well as participating in international service projects. The Club goal is for members to learn the true meaning of “Service Above Self,” by helping others. There is a $10 membership fee, which includes a club t-shirt. Interact members are encouraged to attend the District Conference held in Pigeon Forge in March. There are scholarship and district officer election opportunities for those who attend conference.
Meet: 4th Wednesday of Each Month
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.
Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community.
Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of
Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
Advancing international understanding and goodwill
