Interact, short for International Action, is a youth service club under Rotary National for students between the ages of 14 and 18. We focus on helping the community through service projects and events throughout the school year. Homestead High School is part of District 5170, the largest Interact district in the world! Each year, we are challenged with a new goal to reach with an International Project and Community Project, presented at the Fall Leadership Conference. Past projects we raised money for include “The Answer is the Sun” and “End Polio Now”. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone in all of this! Interactors at Homestead, Area 12, and the entire district are here with you every step of the way. You’ll meet more people than you’ve ever expected, and create some of the best friendships through interact! We’re all united under one cause at Interact, “Service Above Self”.
Our first district-wide event this year is the Fall Leadership Conference! FLC is an annual interact event where our 13 areas, consisting of over 100 schools and 4,000 interactors, gather to learn what Interact really is all about. Our International Project and Community Project is announced here, along with participating in leadership workshops and meeting interactors throughout our district! Interact members, new and old, are highly encouraged to attend this event! It’s an experience that will definitely leave a mark, and hopefully kick-start your year with Interact on a positive note. This year, FLC will be on October 11th at Independence High School.
