About Interact

Interact gives students ages 12-18 the chance to make a real difference while having fun. Every Interact Club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. The Interact Club is sponsored by the local Rotary Club of Townsend. When you sponsor an Interact club, you’re helping young people: connect with community leaders, develop leadership skills, make international connections, and discover more opportunities to connect with Rotary, including Rotaract (students ages 18-30), Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), and Youth Exchange.
