Our Sponsored Interact Club

Our club has sponsored an Interact Club at Coomera Anglican College since August 2014.  They have already done some wonderful work in their community including a winter clothing drive for the homeless and raising thousands of dollars to help with the eradication of polio worldwide through a successful ‘paint a pinky day’.  They have also raised significant funds for disaster relief in Nepal and helped at community events.

What is Interact?

Interact clubs bring together young people aged between 12 and 18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. They find out how serious leadership can be seriously fun. Interact Clubs allow members to connect with leaders in their community and around the world to –

  • Take action to make a difference in their school and community
  • Discover new cultures and promote international understanding
  • Become a leader in their school and community
  • Have fun and make new friends from around the world

Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills. They can celebrate the global impact of Interact by getting involved in –

  • World Interact Week
  • Interact Video Awards
  • Rotary Youth Day at the United Nations
  • Global Youth Service Day
