Our Club's Leadership has taken on the task of creating a Rotary INTERACT Club at the Indianola High School.  Discussions with school officials have been very positive, with one counselor indicating a desire to be the Club's supervisor.  Dave T., Drew G., and Ron H. have all joined together to make this happen.  If you are interested in helping form the INTERACT Club please speak to one of our leaders to see how your talents can help our youth.

WHAT IS INTERACT?

Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with other young people in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding.

While Rotary clubs sponsor them, Interact clubs are largely self-sustaining, requiring little or no financial support from your club.

HOW DO I SPONSOR A CLUB?

Once your club has decided to sponsor an Interact club, form an Interact committee to organize and support the Interact club. Refer to the Interact Guide for Rotary Club Sponsors and Advisers for complete details.

Before starting the club:

  • Determine the need for an Interact club in your community
  • Identify a school or community partner
  • Locate possible Interactors such as current and past participants of Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) and Rotary Youth Exchange
  • Organize an informational meeting for potential members
  • Assign a Rotarian adviser who will attend board meetings of school-based clubs and all meetings of community-based clubs
  • For school-based clubs, identify a faculty adviser who will serve as the liaison between the sponsor Rotary club and the school administration
