Interact Club „Renaşterea“
Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
Interact, the Rotary youth program, was launched by the RI Board of Directors in 1962. The first Interact Club was formed in 1962 in Melbourne High School , Florida , USA. Two months later, the first Interact Club outside the USA was formed in Tanjore , India. By the first anniversary, there were 177 Interact Clubs in 24 countries. As of 1 December 2013, there are 14,734 Interact Clubs, with a membership of 338,836 Interactors in 160 countries, and this is continuously growing.
Interact clubs provide opportunities for boys and girls of secondary school age to work together in a world fellowship of service and international understanding. The term, Interact, is derived from "inter" for international, and "act" for action. Every Interact club must be sponsored and supervised by a Rotary club and must plan annual projects of service to its school, community and in the world.
