Battle Creek Rotary Club Sponsors Its First Interact Club at
St. Philip Catholic Central High School in 2015!
Interact is a community service club that is sponsored by Rotary International for high school students. Clubs comes in many varieties, and may be school-based or community-based. Community-based clubs may draw Interact members from several schools as long as they are within the territorial limits of the sponsoring Rotary club, which provides support and guidance.
Each Interact club is required to complete at least two community service projects every year, one of which must be an international project. Although each Interact club is sponsored by an individual Rotary club, Interact clubs are self-sufficient and should require little or no financial support from Rotary.
Through projects, Interactors learn the importance of leadership, personal integrity, helpfulness and respect for others, and advancement in international understanding and goodwill. In the process, members are also able to have fun and to meet new friends. Today, Interact is one of Rotary’s fastest growing programs, with more than 9,600 clubs in 117 different countries.
