Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community. Even home school groups or students can take part in "community based" Interact clubs.

Each year, Interact clubs are expected to complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs 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 international understanding and goodwill 
District 5190 currently has 34 chartered Interact clubs, including several at middle schools.
