Welcome to Interact!

As the fourth largest Interact District in the United States, with 57 clubs and over 3000 young people doing service, we are helping serve New Jersey schools, Rotary, and the world around us. If you are interested in starting, or revitalizing an Interact Club at your local high school, middle school, or private school, we can help.

Interact clubs

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.

Clubs meet at least twice a month and are sponsored by their local Rotary club. When you sponsor an Interact club, you’re helping young people:

  • connect with community leaders
  • develop leadership skills
  • make international connections
  • discover more opportunities to connect with Rotary, including Rotaract, RYLA, and Youth Exchange

RYLA

Interact members are nominated and invited to attend a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards event to connect with the next generation of community leaders. RYLA is a leadership development program that is organized at the club level and run by the district.  It is for juniors entering their senior year in high school in September.

International connections

From attending international events to joining a Rotary Youth Exchange, you’ll find a variety of ways to connect globally through Interact.

Events

Celebrate your club’s global impact by getting involved in:

  • World Interact Week
  • Interact Video Contest

Follow Interact on Facebook and YouTube to find more opportunities to get involved.
