Service Above Self
Interact is an international organization of service and social clubs for young people of secondary school age that fosters leadership and responsible citizenship and promotes international understanding and peace. The name was created by combining the words "international" and "action." Interact Clubs are sponsored by Rotary Clubs as a program of Rotary International. Rotary Clubs provide guidance and inspiration, but the Interact Clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.
Through their service activities, Interact Club members learn the importance of:
1. Developing leadership skills and personal integrity;
2. Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others.
3. Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work;
4. Advancing international understanding and goodwill.
