•  About Interact


    Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting. Shawnee High School's Interact Club is sponsored by the Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club. 

    Each year, Interact members complete at least two large community service projects to promote local, national and international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interact members develop a network of friendships and learn the importance of
    • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
    • Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
    • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
    • Advancing local, national and international understanding and goodwill
    As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
