Interact is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young people age 14-18. Interact Clubs can either be school or community based and are required to carry out at least two service projects annually - one that serves their school or community and another that furthers international understanding.
Although each club is sponsored by a local Rotary club whose members offer guidance, Interact clubs are responsible for planning, financing, organizing, and executing their own projects.
The first Interact club was formed at Melbourne High School in Florida, USA on 28 October 1962. The club had 23 members. Today, there are 6,605 Interact clubs in 101 countries and an estimated 151,915 Interactors worldwide.
