About Us

What is Interact

Interact is one of Rotary International’s nine structured programs designed to help clubs and districts achieve their service goals in their own communities and in communities abroad, fostering fellowship and goodwill in the process.

RInteract is a service club for young people ages 14-18. Sponsored by local Rotary clubs, Interact clubs give young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends.

Interactors and Rotarians are partners in service. Rotarians mentor promising youth in their communities. Interactors bring new energy to a Rotary club, inspire fresh ideas for service, increase support of projects, and help develop future Rotarians.

World Interact Week

Every year, Interactors and Rotarians celebrate the charter of the first Interact club during the week of 5 November. Together they participate in a variety of activities to increase Interact awareness in their communities.


Every Interact Club is part of a district Rotary organization, Each club is supported by sponsoring Rotarians. Our district is District 5130. The district website is here. Our sponsoring club, Petaluma Valley Rotary can be seen here.

The clubs and district plan conferences, develops regional projects, holds club leadership training programs, and sponsors special events to strengthen the bond among Interact Clubs.
