What is Interact?
Interact is a Rotary sponsored service club for young people, age 14 -18 and is typically affiliated with a high school.
Castleview High School Interact Club
The Rotary Club of Castle Rock is the proud sponsor of the Castle View High School Interact Club.
An Interact Club gives young people an opportunity to participate in meaningful service projects while having fun with their peers. They organize, manage and complete at least two service projects a year; one serving the local community and the other serving an international community. Along the way, Interactors develop their skills in leadership and organizing while learning to take the initiative.
Through their service activities, Interactors learn the importance of:
- developing leadership skills and personal integrity, exemplified by the "4-Way Test"
- demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
- understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
- advancing international understanding and goodwill
Interactors have access to the many resources of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Rotary International provides the administrative support that helps Interact clubs thrive.
A Key Member of the Rotary Family
Rotary International is a worldwide service organization for leading business and professional men and women, with 29,000 Rotary clubs and more than 1.2 million members. Interact clubs are self-supported and self-governing but receive guidance from a sponsoring Rotary Club. This sponsorship is the result of Rotary's concern that young people, or "New Generations," should take an active interest in community life and have the opportunity to develop leadership skills. Interact provides a vehicle through which New Generations can find that involvement.
