Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with other young people 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.

The Club sponsors Interact Clubs in seven high schools: Piedmont Hills, Silver Creek, James Lick, Evergreen, Foothill, Yerba Buena and Mt. Pleasant. We provide mentors as well as financial support for leadership training for their incoming and sitting officers.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
RYLA is a leadership development program that is organized at the club, district, or multidistrict level. The format of your event depends on what you hope to accomplish, your resources, and your audience – it could be a one-day seminar, a three-day retreat, or a weeklong camp.

While participants can be any age, most events focus on secondary school students, university students, or young adults. You can use RYLA to engage at-risk youth, motivate Interact or Rotaract club officers, reconnect with Rotary alumni, or mentor young professionals to become responsible leaders.

President's Winter Retreat
The retreat is a great chance to meet and mingle with dedicated leaders like you from all over the district. During this retreat, you will participate in a series of fun and interactive workshops to further develop your leadership skills, gain inspiration from a keynote speaker, and share ideas and experiences with your peers. PWR will prepare you for the remaining months of the year while giving you the opportunity to form new friendships in a fun and relaxed mountain setting.

In turn, Interactors support our club activities enthusiastically: volunteering at events and helping at club fundraisers such as our Crab Feed.
