Club Dinner Meeting – Interact and Earlyact
October 23, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
SPEAKER : Salwyn Shahime [ District Chair of Interact]
TOPIC: Interact and Earlyact
Interact is RI’s service Club for young people aged 12 to 18. Interact Clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary Clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting. As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 20,372 Clubs in 139countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon.
Almost 468,000 young people are involved. Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community. Each year, Interact Clubs 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.
Earlyact is a service Club for primary school students and is sponsored by a local Rotary Club.
Its mission and operation are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary.
Earlyact Clubs strive to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through the active participation of their student members, so that with committed citizenship and effective leadership they may improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities.
Involvement in an Earlyact Club teaches values such as caring, respect, responsibility, tolerance, compassion, friendship and leadership.
