Introduction to INTERACT

SO WHAT IS INTERACT ?
Interacts are clubs for young people aged 12-18 who want to join together to tackle issues in their community that they care most about.

They are sponsored by individual Rotary Clubs which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing.

WHAT IS ROTARY ALL ABOUT ?
Rotary International is a global association of Rotary Clubs with more than 1.2 million members worldwide. Rotarians are united by common values and vision for the future as they sharpen their focus with targeted specific causes that will reach communities most in need.

WHAT ARE OUR GOALS?
Every Interact club carries out at least two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding and goodwill.

ISD Interact Club meets at least twice a month and is sponsored by the Rotary club Dakar Almadies.

Last year our two projects were :

1) Week Without Walls Drive (Collecting school furniture and food to then distribute in Sine Saloum and Kedougou villages)

2) Carry out environmental courses for Elementary Classes (2nd grade through-4th grade)

WHAT CAN STUDENT GET FROM THIS ACTIVITY?
. Develop leadership skills and personal integrity

· Create international connections

· Demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others

· Understand the value of individual responsibility and hard work

· Advance international understanding and goodwill

· Community hours (9th& 10th students)

· CAS HOURS (Mandatory for IB)

· Interact can really boost college application (Being part of an Interact Club may be very impressive on University applications and can make a real difference).

We meet on Fridays (3:30-4:00) – Room 104

Be part of the change !
