Starting a club

The goal of international service through Interact is to encourage and foster the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of youth united in the ideal of service.


Promoting Interact

P ublic relations is an important aspect of Interact club service. This work helps promote relationships among your club, your sponsor Rotary club, and the community. Though the practice of public relations varies among cultures, every club has outside audiences with whom it must communicate.

Interact public relations can be directed at your sponsor club, the business community, local government officials, civic leaders, other organizations, and people directly affected by your club’s service initiatives.
